In the Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood, There are two maids talking to each other when a man walks up to them slowly and starts proposing an idea to them that women should not be going to go find jobs they should be staying home with the kids and feeding/providing for the children while the men go out and work.

“We can make things so much better! The women won’t have to work they can stay home with the children isn’t this great!” He says

“Better never means better for everyone,” she says

“Its the right thing trust me” he says and walks off

This was a very realistic saying and if you think about what she is saying it has a lot deeper meaning and is usually true in most cases. Someone will always be unhappy with the choice that’s just the way it is.
