All that she has is a little plant. The emotional message of this quote is that she saw what other families could have, a nice house, success, love, and of course a father who was still living. At this point in the book she feels as though her family has not reached its potential. No matter how hard they tried, they still haven’t gotten to that place yet. It is obvious that this is the subtext because earlier on Mama and Ruth were talking about how the children have spirit even though they haven’t had the best circumstances.

Brait 1 Mike Brait Ms. Palazzolo ENG 4U1 1 November 2012 Inner Conflict Throughout “The Painted Door” and “The Lamp at Noon” Carlos Fuentes once said “Love can isolate us from everything around us. But in its absence we can be filled with the fear that something comparable exists.” In both stories, the love of a soul mate causes isolation around them.

I feel that the most important issue that couples should agree on prior to being married would be to agree to disagree. This will help settle future arguments before they reach an extreme level, because divorce should never be and option. In comparison to my answers, my parents’s answers have many similarities to mine.
