“If it didn’t work out God mustn’t have wanted it to. You, Tsaytl, just weren’t meant to be a fine lady with a house full  of grand things and two parents who could finally enjoy themselves a bit after keeping their nose to the grindstone all their poor, luckless, miserable, penniless lives…”  

–Sholem Aleichem, Tevye the Dairyman, translated by Hillel Halkin
