Loyalty Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

All that time, all that time, I thought I was missing Jude. [. . . ] We was girls together. (1965.72)

At this moment, Nel seems to realize that her loyalty has been misdirected. Although she thought she'd been missing Jude all these years, she realizes that it was really Sula. They'd been friends since childhood, and that's a rare loyalty.
