Quote for the Day

"To be frivolous is to be human," said August. "To be pointlessly skilful is to be human, as far as I can see. I hope you would not consider legislating to prevent me from having a Sèvres vessel."

Humphrey frowned. "We must hope to make a society where nobody wants anything so absurd."

--A.S. Byatt, The Children's Book (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2009), p. 77.
