    Actually the book beside my hand is Russian-English dictionary, bur right now I am reading 'Swejk' by Jaroslav Hasek and the sentence is: Ez a Stendler külonben is borzásztó peches ember volt, már magándetektív korában is.

    Which means 'But even Mr Stendler had awfully bad luck as a private detective.'
    "Where love is there God is also".
    Leo Tolstoy

    LE DIVORCE - Diane Johnson

    The furniture, with its curves and chipped gilding, so like the former grandeur of a rundown Westwood motel, looks very odd and pretentious to the American eye when you first come to France, until you remember that this is their normal furniture, the Louis were their kings.
