“I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”
― W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil
I have no words when it comes to Somerset. My all time favourite writer whose stories are flows of words about the life and adventures of ordinary people in ordinary circumstances.
Somerset’s artful gift of gab made them extraordinary people living in extraordinary circumstances.
