I need a quote that resembles how in the book or at least at the beginning of the book, Sayuri thought she had no control over her destiny.
I don’t remember the quotes exactly except something about her tipsy house. I love that book though!
Maybe you can find what you’re after at one of these sites that I am adding in a March 27, 2012, post edit? To be honest, only three of them deal with quotes. But at the very least, you might find a site or two of some interest:
126. MEMOIRS of a GEISHA. Arthur Golden 1997. In this striking memoir that reads like a work of non-fiction, Sayuri sits with a translator and narrates her life as one of the most sought-after geisha in Gion around World War II.

Memoirs of a Geisha best scene
Uploaded by cnumb06 on Aug 23, 2009
My favourite scene.
Sayuri Narration: “The heart dies a slow death, shedding each hope like leaves. Until one day there are none. No hopes. Nothing remains.
She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret.”
