((This painting is by Hippolyte Romain, a French artist who has an amazing and vibrant collection of great scenes like this one here. I discovered him on Carla Loves Photography, and then went straight to his site, really fun stuff.))

Love the painting, love the quote---though isn't it funny that it comes from Emily D. who shut herself in an attic room her whole life? Knowing that about her makes the quotation even more striking I think...
