PASSED BY HAPPINESS

BEL’OCCHIO    (THE BEAUTIFUL EYE)

YOU HAVE JUST PASSED BY HAPPINESS

“Sometimes, our thoughts turn back toward to a corner in a forest,

or the end of a bank,

or an orchard powdered with flowers, seen but a single time on some gay day,

yet remaining in our hearts like the image of certain women met in the street on a spring morning in their light, gauzy dresses, 

and leaving in soul and body an  unsatisfied  desire which is not to be forgotten,

a feeling that you have just passed by happiness. “

(Mother Savage – Guy de Maupassant)

” …..you have just passed by happiness.”
