No One Cares For Me But You

‘Well, John?’
He knew what that little speech meant. But he had steeled himself. He longed to reply with a jest; the bitterness in his heart could not utter one, but his mother deserved better of him. He came round behind her, so that she could not see his looks, and, bending back her grey, stony face, he kissed it, murmuring:
‘No one loves me – no one cares from me, but you, mother.’

– North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
