Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master This quote describes the character of Rosalind, a smart and beautiful woman who is “quite unprincipled”. Literally, “carpe diem” means seizing the day and not worrying too much about the future. “Laissez-faire” derives from an economic theory in which government supports free market through weak regulation. In this context, the term refers to a rather individualistic worldview.
