“Random thoughts for Valentine’s Day, 2004” [part 4]

Edward Hopper - "Gas" (without doubt my all-time favorite painting)

Edward Hopper - "Gas" (without doubt my all-time favorite painting)

“Oh nature, what hadst thou to do in hell
When thou didst bower the spirit of a fiend
In mortal paradise of such sweet flesh?
Was ever book containing such vile matter
So fairly bound?
O, that deceit should dwell
In such a gorgeous palace!”

(Juliet cries out to the Nurse, in Will Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, III.2, 80-85)
