Quote of the Day for 2016-08-18

"My kisses are as light as fairy midges / That on calm evenings skim the crystal lake. / Those of your man would plough such ruts and ridges / As lumbering carts or tearing coulters make."

Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867) "Femmes Damnées" from Les Fleurs du Mal (1857) Translated by Roy Campbell in Poems of Baudelaire (1952)

Le Sommeil by Gustave Courbet (1866)
