The word lady is specifically the female equivalent for gentlemen. Once used to describe only women of a high social class, race, community, and status; now the term is commonly used to refer to any respectable adult woman, or even any woman. Here we'll talk about high social class from the past, more exactly from the 19th century. At a time when aristocracy was a restricted world. At a time when middle class didn't exist. At a time when you where rich or poor. Some merchants did become rich, but it didn't give them a pass to belong to the aristocracy, cause they lacked a family name and the manners and education of the aristocracy.

Keira was a lady in her own right, a member of a high social class family. She lived in a world of "Innocent Lies" when she was a child. When she turned into a women, she learned the new way: guilty lies. She lived in a world of "Pride & Prejudice", and "Silk" as she was a beautiful, elegant and classy woman. She lived on "The Edge of Love" as she couldn't have an open romance with the man she fell in love with, a cavalry officer called Vronsky. Whenever she was in his arms she told him:

"Never Let Me Go."

But Vronsky had to leave. He was not his husband; Karenin, a senior statesman was. To "Begin Again" a new love life, she ran away with her lover. But she and Karenin had a son, and that would make things very complicated. The "Aftermath" of this controversial love affair, was her suicide at the train station. But before getting to her tragic end, we'll go through her life and her world. It's better to remember her when she was alive, rather than her tragic death. People always leave a legacy, a memory. Don't let a bad and sad ending ruin this legacy. And it would cheer up the people who knew her to remind the funniest moments.

"I see a pair of shoes I adore, and it doesn't matter if they have them in my size. I buy them anyway."

Women have always been crazy with shoes. It already began in the 19th century.

"Empathy is the main thing, putting yourself in somebody else's shoes and trying not to judge."

Now I understand why Keira bought so many shoes, included men's shoes. How could she put herself in men's shoes if she didn't have any. She didn't buy them for her husband, she did it to understand men. Women are so subtle; you would have never guessed it if I hadn't told you for sure.

"I think everybody has the right to a private life."

Her love affair with Vronksy provoked a lot of gossip... So much that she stopped to go to the opera, social gatherings,... And as a consequence found herself socially isolated. It's very difficult to have a private life when you have a public life. It's even worst when you do something socially wrong and don't respect social norms of high society.

"If only I wasn't an atheist, I could get away with anything. You'd just ask for forgiveness and then you'd be forgiven. It sounds much better than having to live with guilt."

The moral laws of the Russian Orthodox Church put pressure on her. She didn't feel she could divorce from Karenin. She was afraid and anxious for the scandal it would provoke, and for not being able to get back the respect and her place in the high society she belonged to. Do atheist have to live with their guilt cause they don't believe in anything? I think everybody has to live with its guilt, doesn't make any difference if you believe in God, Muhammad, Buddha, or anything else.

"I don't think that you can fake warmth. You can fake lust, jealousy, anger; those are all quite easy. But actual, genuine warmth? I don't think you can fake it."

That's the best way to figure out if people fake. Warmth is something that is genuine, that comes from the heart. If it doesn't reach your heart it means the person is pretending, faking. Warmth is something you feel deep inside, superficial words and behaviors can't get you wrong.

"Nice is the worst word."

This is because it's the word people use the most frequently when they are hypocritical and being polite. Tribes like the Vikings, Mongolians and other savages never used this word. Maybe there were not the nicest people on earth, but they were real people meaning what they said.

"I think it doesn't matter where you're from, we all need a bit of romance."

But Keira needed to much romance. That's the problem when you get married for social status, economic security, these kind of reasons. You end up trapped in a golden cage, and when true love shows up, you have to escape from the golden cage. Keira couldn't deal with it, and Tolstoy wrote the last lines of her life.

"So, goodnight Keira. If you were a pirate you would be alive. Will would make a better match than Vronky, and there's no funny and crazy Jack Sparrow in Russian Aristocracy."
