The never ending story…

There is one topic peremptorily forbidden to all well-bred, to all rational mortals, namely, their distempers. If you have not slept, or if you have slept, or if you have headache, or sciatica, or leprosy, or thunder-stroke, I beseech you, by all angels, to hold your peace, and not pollute the morning”……….Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.

“It is a general popular error to suppose the loudest complainers for the public to be the most anxious for its welfare”……Edmund Burke (1729-1797) British political writer.

“Jean Cocteau: Art produces ugly things which frequently become beautiful with time. Fashion … produces beautiful things which always become ugly with time.”

AND COMPLAINTS PRODUCE NOTHING BEAUTIFUL AND WILL ALWAYS BE A WASTE OF TIME…
