Art quote:: Dali’s diary on this day 50 years ago

“Deliciously aching with the desire to outdo myself. This divine dissatisfaction is the sign that something is growing inside my soul which will give me great satisfaction. At dusk I look out of the window at Gala, who seems to me to look even younger than the evening before. She is sailing in her new boat. In passing, she tries to caress our two swans which are standing on a little dinghy. But one flies off and the other hides under the bow.”

Art quote:: Dali on melodious farts

“Because of a very long fart, really a very long and, let us be frank, melodious fart, that I produced when I woke up, I was reminded of Michel de Montaigne. This author reports that Saint Augustine was a famous farter who succeeded in playing entire scores.”
