Honore de Balzac
In utter loneliness a writer tries to explain the inexplicable.
An ideal wife is one who remains faithful to you but tries to be just as charming as if she weren't.
A financial institution has the task of taking risks, and if it's a well run institution - say, Goldman Sachs - it tries to cover the potential losses to itself, but only to itself.
Society is now one polished horde, formed of two mighty tries, the Bores and Bored.
