Daily Dose

From Colonel Chabert, by Honore de Balzac, translated by Carol Cosman


"Misfortune is a kind of talisman whose power confirms our original nature; it increases mistrust and meanness in  certain men, just as it improves the goodness of those with kind hearts."

From Pg. 81, this edition
