Daily Quote for Tuesday, April 3, 2007

April 3, 2007

There isn’t a bourgeois alive who, in the ferment of his youth, if only for a day or for a minute, hasn’t thought himself capable of boundless passions and noble exploits. The sorriest little woman-chaser has dreamed of Oriental Queens; in a corner of every notary’s heart lie the moldy remains of a poet.

–Madame Bovary, Gustave Flaubert
