Daily Dose

From The Counterfeiters, by Andre Gide, translated by Dorothy Bussy


"When a big, strong, matter-of-fact man, who has made his way through life and is firmly established in his career, suddenly throws aside all decorum and pours out his heart before a stranger, he affords him (in this case it was I) a most singular spectacle."

From Chapter XIII, Edouard's Journal: Douviers' Profitendieu
