“To love or have loved, that is enough. Ask nothing further. There is no other pearl to be found in the dark folds of life.”
Joly was the “malade imaginaire” junior. What he had won in medicine was to be more of an invalid than a doctor. At three and twenty he thought himself a valetudinarian, and passed his life in inspecting his tongue in the mirror. He affirmed that man becomes magnetic like a needle, and in his chamber he placed his bed with its head to the south, and the foot to the north, so that, at night, the circulation of his blood might not be interfered with by the great electric current of the globe. During thunder storms, he felt his pulse. Otherwise, he was the gayest of them all.

People shouldn’t be shamed for what they eat
Wanna eat meat? That’s okay
Wanna not eat meat? That’s okay
Wanna not eat anything the comes from animals at all? That’s okay
People shouldn’t be ashamed of what they eat, unless it’s people. Don’t eat people.
Pascal Adolphe Jean Dagnan-Bouveret (1852-1929), “Orpheus’s Sorrow”
