    One must live, and so one becomes selfish.

    You have never loved me. You have only thought it pleasant to be in love with me.

    Nora. It is perfectly true, Torvald. When I was at home with papa, he told me his opinion about everything, and so I had the same opinions; and if I differed from him I concealed the fact, because he would not have liked it. He called me his doll-child, and he played with me just as I used to play with my dolls. And when I came to live with you—

    Helmer. What sort of an expression is that to use about our marriage?

    Nora (undisturbed). I mean that I was simply transferred from papa's hands into yours. You arranged everything according to your own taste, and so I got the same tastes as you—or else I pretended to, I am really not quite sure which—I think sometimes the one and sometimes the other. When I look back on it, it seems to me as if I had been living here like a poor woman—just from hand to mouth. I have existed merely to perform tricks for you, Torvald. But you would have it so. You and papa have committed a great sin against me. It is your fault that I have made nothing of my life.

    Helmer. How unreasonable and how ungrateful you are, Nora! Have you not been happy here?

    Nora. No, I have never been happy. I thought I was, but it has never really been so.

    that is why this play is named "A Doll House". Whole her life Nora was a doll in doll houses.

    Anastasiia Kuznietsovahas quotedlast year
    No, only merry. And you have always been so kind to me. But our home has been nothing but a playroom. I have been your doll-wife, just as at home I was papa's doll-child; and here the children have been my dolls. I thought it great fun when you played with me, just as they thought it great fun when I played with them. That is what our marriage has been, Torvald.

    at last she understood what had happened

    Anastasiia Kuznietsovahas quotedlast year
    But no man would sacrifice his honour for the one he loves.

    Nora. It is a thing hundreds of thousands of women have done.

    Helmet is a piece of shit

    Anastasiia Kuznietsovahas quotedlast year
    As soon as your fear was over—and it was not fear for what threatened me, but for what might happen to you—when the whole thing was past, as far as you were concerned it was exactly as if nothing at all had happened. Exactly as before, I was your little skylark, your doll, which you would in future treat with doubly gentle care, because it was so brittle and fragile.

    Helmer. I would gladly work night and day for you, Nora—bear sorrow and want for your sake. But no man would sacrifice his honour for the one he loves.
