Wagstaff's lumber room #3

From Humboldt's Gift by Saul Bellow:

For there was a lot of agony in Demmie. Some women wept softly as a watering can in the garden. Demmie cried passionately, as only a woman who believes in sin can cry. When she cried you not only pitied her, you respected her strength of soul.
