Quote of the Day (QotD)

Alexandre Cabanel, Cleopatra Testing Poisons on Condemned Prisoners

"Certainly it would be a relief to cross Cleopatra off our list of objects we have lost, or believe we have lost: Atlantis, Jamestown, an entire tribe of Israel, good manners, Jimmy Hoffa."

Original NYT article here.

And another one, given the topic: "Age cannot wither her nor custom stale her infinite variety." If you don't know who wrote that, you have some reading to do.
