quote of the day------goodreads

There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it

Gustave Flaubert

October 26, 1849: On this day, Gustave Flaubert embarked on a two-year trip to Greece and Egypt. But before he could leave, he had to say goodbye to his mother. He later described their parting as "atrocious" and confessed to darting away while her wails followed him out the door.
