Quote of the Day

A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This "fine picture" happens to be St. Cecilia with Two Angels, by Antiveduto Gramatica. The host site, Web Gallery of Art, suggests you listen to "a little music" by Girolamo Frescobaldi as you contemplate the details of this lovely painting. (You're on your own for the poetry today, but I have every confidence you can do it!)

Cloche Tip for the quote goes to Francesca.
