Scented Quote of the Day, from Mark Helprin:


"At Moocock, an informal dinner awaited and a lively fire burned in cool air fresh with the scents of flowers. "It's very romantic" Fredericka said.

"I've never understood what it is," Freddy replied, "that moves women to think that a bunch of burning paraffin sticks and some flowers have anything to do with that awful word, romantic." (please read on....)  

"Then what would you call it?"

"Elegant and appropriate."

"Ah," she said. Look at this. It's so...appropriate."
