My friend Barbe says that this flat little figures remind her of cookies.



The truth, but not the whole truth. Nothing demands more caution than the truth: it is the lancet of the heart. It requires as much to tell the truth as to conceal it. A single lie destroys a whole reputation for integrity. The deceit is regarded as treason and the deceiver as a traitor, which is worse. Yet not all truths can be spoken: some for our own sake, others for the sake of others.

A maxim, by the great thinker Balthazar Gracian de Morales
