"Odalisque in Red Trousers" by Henri Matisse
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves. by Victor Hugo (French romantic Poet, Novelist and Dramatist, 1802-1885)


  1. Wonderful quote and so true. Sometimes when I'm having a really bad day and am a real pain, my hubby gives me a hug and I think; "I am so lucky to have him. How does he put up with me?" Thankfully we can be loved in spite of ourselves. :)

  2. The "inspite of" part is important to remember, in both directions! :-)
