Context

“«You didn't come for love of me, that I'll swear.»
«'Tis quite true. If I had gone for love o' you, if I had ever sincerely loved you, if I loved you still, I should not so loathe and hate myself for my weakness as I do now!… My eyes were dazed by you for a little, and that was all.»
He shrugged his shoulders. She resumed—
«I didn't understand your meaning till it was too late.»
«That's what every woman says.»
«How can you dare to use such words!» she cried, turning impetuously upon him, her eyes flashing as the latent spirit (of which he was to see more some day) awoke in her.” source
