When inanities are expressed, we can discover them just by paying attention to the words."

Today's Quote

Les choses à ne pas dire ne sont pas forcément les choses sales, au contraire. Il faut toujours raconter des saletés qu'on a en soi : c'est sain, c'est gai, c'est tonique. Non, les choses à ne pas dire sont d'un autre ordre – et ne vous attendez pas à ce que je vous l'explique, puisque ce sont précisément des choses à ne pas dire."
Author: Amélie Nothomb
