At night he went home and there was Lucile - less like a flower, but still silent, fragrant, hopeful. He said to her: "you will never have anything more than you have now, Lucile, do you realize that?" she replied: "I don't want anything more to dust and take care of!" Once he said:"When you were a girl you dreamed that you 'd have things different, didn't you, Lucile?" she said: "my dear, all that poor girl knew how to dream was just about having things!" He cried: "What do you want most of anything in this world?" she considered and answered: " I want you to be as happy as I am."
Dose it mean that even when she was a young girl she did not care about having things?
