"Was Nina happy?" Catherine asked.
"I hope she will be happy," the girl said. "Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know."
"You haven't had such a long time to find out about it. "If you make mistakes you find out faster," the girl said. 'You've been happy all morning," Catherine said. "We had a wonderful time."
