    Inner signs

    Hello Teacher and forum members

    Quoted from Academy Street by Mary Costello.

    "She had always had a need to live by inner signs and had been in perpetual waiting for them to break through. In their absence she had gone blindly on, abiding, making few human measurings. And yet now in this time, in this life with Theo, there was calm. She felt it a vocation"

    To my understanding, 'inner signs' is what her heart tells her. If so, what are underlined words mean?

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Inner signs

    I agree with your interpretation of "inner signs". I'm honestly not sure what the later underlined part means. My best guess is that she lived according to her own standards, not necessarily standards that could be measured by other people.
