Daily Dose

From Cousin Pons, by Honoré de Balzac. translated by James Waring & Ellen Marriage


"And this in a time when advertising is all powerful; when we gild the gas lamps in the Place de la Concorde to console the poor man for his poverty by reminding him that he is rich as a citizen."

From Page 258, Saintsbury Edition
