Daily Dose

From Epitaph of a Small Winner, by Machado De Assis, translated by William L. Grossman


"Ah, my indiscreet and grossly ignorant beloved, it is this very capacity that makes us masters of the earth, this capacity to restore the past and thus to prove the instability of our impressions and the vanity of our affections."

From 27. Virgilias?
