Quote #10

Sula felt her face smiling. "Well, I'll be damned," she thought, "it didn't even hurt. Wait'll I tell Nel" (1940.94).

Despite all they've been through, and despite the fact that Nel has left Sula's bedside with no intention of seeing her again, Sula's last thought is of her friend. She remains devoted to her until her last breath.
