A fictional woman decides not to be a dupe to illusions

Cory Coleman as Edna Pontellier
"The years that are gone seem like dreams - if one might go on sleeping and dreaming - but to wake up and find - oh! well! perhaps it is better to wake up after all, even to suffer, rather than to remain a dupe to illusions all one's life."
The character Edna Pontellier in Kate Chopin's The Awakening, 1899.
