Wish I'd said that - August 28, 2017

"The only thing one can be proud of is having worked in such a way that an official reward for your behaviour cannot be envisaged by anyone."

Jean Cocteau (1889-1963), French writer and filmmaker, quoted as "Thought du jour" in "Social Studies" in Globe and Mail April 5, 2011. (Cocteau was in fact a member of the Académie française and the Royal Academy of Belgium, a Commander of the Legion of Honor and a member of the Mallarmé Academy, the German Academy (Berlin), the American Academy, the Mark Twain (U.S.A) Academy, as well as Honorary President of the Cannes film festival, Honorary President of the France-Hungary Association and President of the Jazz Academy and of the Academy of the Disc, which tells you what intellectuals' pose of rebellion is generally worth.)
