She was! And that's what makes her so interesting to debate, and to learn about things from her life.

I think her life is pretty much an open book...Whereas Kyrill's is not... >:(

It is harder to know about him. We do have to remember that Ducky found happiness with him for a while, and did much to be with him, that caused her trouble. She thought he was worth it, then at least.

Ducky thought that they were soulmates and life partners. Is was until later she found out that he had kept some secrets from her and thus the partnership had dissolved. She cannot live with this failure.  :(

Exactly- and perhaps she felt that it reflected on her that she had done so much for him, and he betrayed her. She estimated him one way, but he was another.

Hard to say...Times change and people change too. Missy was more philosophical about these things but Ducky remain insistant on these virtures and did not want to lower them... :(

Right; sometimes it is best to look from a distance, and be philosophical, rather than confront people or problems in conflict. Life isn't as black and white as Ducky saw it; it has more infinte shades of grey. Her tragedy was, she never distanced herself, and look philosophically at things.

True...But Ducky was set in her ways and cannot change. Steadfastness could be a virture but also a heavy load.  :(

It was, and it is. I think we all should take the time to try to get around the things in life that trap us, without taking them so seriously that it causes us pain. Ducky didn't understand that, or maybe coudn't change herself.

Yes.. but I like Ducky as Ducky, even if that caused her pain.

She was not easy on herself...I admired her but do not want to be like her (so unforgiving and hard).  :(

Me as well; we can't be unforgiving and hard, because that gets to be impossible on ourselves, and others as well.That is well illustrated by Ducky's life.

I often wondered if Ducky gave Ernie any thoughts years after they divorce ?

I don't know, I think she largely left him behind her as a part of the past she didn't wish to remember. That's just my view.
