[His] leaving had stabbed her heart. This organ was not inclined to forgive her for vulnerability.

About This Quote

The heart is a very sensitive organ. It is very easy for one to take things much to heart, much to the point where one does not think clearly. The vulnerability that Angie experienced in her relationship with Nelson Mandela was much too much for her to handle. He was her world, and even though he left her, she was still still holding on to him.

This made it hard for her to let go of the pain she felt because of his leaving. It made it hard for her to think clearly at the time.
