DESCRIPTION

Tell me, you enigmatic man, whom do you love the most? Your father, your

mother, your sister or your brother? 

— I have neither father, nor mother, nor sister, nor brother. 

Your friends? 

— You’re using a word whose meaning remains yet unknown to me. 

Your homeland? 

— I ignore even the latitude where it is situated.

Beauty? 

— I would be happy to love her, goddess-like and immortal. 

Gold? 

— I hate gold like you hate God. 

Well then, what do you love, extraordinary stranger ? 

— I love the clouds… the clouds that pass… down there… over there… the

marvelous clouds! 

"The Stranger" by Charles Baudelaire

 from Le Spleen de Paris

Translated by Paul D’Agostino
