"There was something in Marge’s eyes when she was very serious that made her look wise and old in spite of the naïve clothes she wore and her windblown hair and her general air of a Girl Scout. She had the look of a mother or an older sister now—the old feminine disapproval of the destructive play of little boys and men."

Patricia Highsmith; "The Talented Mr. Ripley", 1955
