Thought for the day ...

Throughout the centuries, man has considered himself beautiful. I rather suppose that man only believes in his own beauty out of pride; that he is not really beautiful and he suspects this himself; for why does he look on the face of his fellow-man with such scorn?
- Isidore Ducasse (Comte de Lautréamont), who died on this date in 1874
