I could see you looking at their thinking. Doesn't have any feelings, huh? That's what you're saying, isn't it? I was actually wondering who's on. This is why I think I'm looking for compassion and feeling, not joy, Never there. I'm looking for compassion and feeling, compassion and suffering. I think Toe Shover, For all the horrors I have brought down on my wife and Children, we have for you know, the little ones. Sonia. Uh, now we come to it to Sunday.

But the brute will aunt, I lost my job. Now we have a room in the tenement neighbors who despise us. Spit on my Katarina for her Hasn't graces has a soldier, is he? Once you stopped to drink, there is nothing to catch you and you fall. You fall right to the bottom of the pit. She works, You drink. How old is she? 18. Money is hard enough to come by. I know that. How much could she? And I mean for all of you? Oh, come on, Mr Mama. Lard off. What's enough? She sews shirts that wouldn't keep a monk in vodka. Never mind feed a family problem. A loved one. Six months ago I was drunk and at home and the little ones were 100. Kate was hungry. There was no money for the rent. Wonderful. I waas you were drunk and the land lead is wanting the rent or we're out on our years of them. Takes Katarina by the shoulder and they walk over to the window in the chatter Be on a big later.

And Katarina kneels by her feet and kisses him. I was lousy. Has a rule of her own. He comes to see us in the evenings. Sometimes always she leaves money. Your daughters are prostitutes. Oh, I was so shale that I stopped the kid My old job back and things were so fine Coffee before I left for work, Kate. So obliging when I got home that night everything simply as if I moved into the Kingdom of heaven until I brought my first month's salary home.
