Woman with Hedgehog

"Woman with Hedgehog" ©2009 Fatima Ronquillo

She only cared for the sea when it was lashed to fury by the storm, and for verdure when it served as a background to a ruin. Everything must needs minister to her personal longings, as it were, and she thrust aside as of no account whatever everything that did not immediately contribute to stir the emotions of her heart, for her temperament was sentimental rather than artistic, seeking, not pictures, but emotions.
Gustav Flaubert, Madame Bovary
