The thought for today


“Life is filigree work. What is written clearly is not worth much, it's the transparency that counts.”

Louis Ferdinand Celine

Louis Ferdinand Céline foi um colaboracionista activo do regime de Vichy e anti semita notório. Andas com boas leituras....
No entanto confesso que eu próprio li-o e gostei do seu livro "D'un chateau l'autre" (salvo erro) E a frase que retiraste é linda e profunda - e acertada!

I guess that even a notorious fascist and anti-semitc is capable of some poetic feeling...
The quote seemed appropriate.
I won't be quoting Celine again.
