1 He met Gerty Farish's brimming gaze.
2 "It was horrid of me to say that of Gerty," she said with charming compunction.
3 Gerty Farish, the morning after the Wellington Brys' entertainment, woke from dreams as happy as Lily's.
4 Cornelia Van Alstyne was full of it: Molly was there, and Gerty Farish ran in for a minute to tell us about it.
5 He could not wait for the midday recess, but seized a moment's leisure in court to scribble his telegram to Gerty Farish.
6 His mind turned to Gerty Farish's words, and the wisdom of the world seemed a groping thing beside the insight of innocence.
7 Gerty Farish was not a close enough reader of character to disentangle the mixed threads of which Lily's philanthropy was woven.
8 Gerty Farish, seated next to Selden, was lost in that indiscriminate and uncritical enjoyment so irritating to Miss Bart's finer perceptions.
9 I came with Gerty Farish, and promised not to let her miss the train, but I am sure she is still extracting sentimental solace from the wedding presents.
10 While Gerty was lost in the happy bustle which this announcement produced in her small household, Selden was at one with her in thinking with intensity of Lily Bart.
11 As to the nature of Selden's growing kindness, Gerty would no more have dared to define it than she would have tried to learn a butterfly's colours by knocking the dust from its wings.

14 Gerty lived by such simple formulas that she did not hesitate to class her friend's state with the emotional "change of heart" to which her dealings with the poor had accustomed her; and she rejoiced in the thought that she had been the humble instrument of this renewal.
15 If these two factors seem incompatible to the student of feminine psychology, it must be remembered that Gerty had always been a parasite in the moral order, living on the crumbs of other tables, and content to look through the window at the banquet spread for her friends.
16 Certainly no one need have confessed such acquiescence in her lot as was revealed in the "useful" colour of Gerty Farish's gown and the subdued lines of her hat: it is almost as stupid to let your clothes betray that you know you are ugly as to have them proclaim that you think you are beautiful.
17 Of course, being fatally poor and dingy, it was wise of Gerty to have taken up philanthropy and symphony concerts; but there was something irritating in her assumption that existence yielded no higher pleasures, and that one might get as much interest and excitement out of life in a cramped flat as in the splendours of the Van Osburgh establishment.
