So I was walking through strand the other day and realized although my love of Sade is well known in the goodreads world and outside of it(so the point that Kirk jones sent me a bookplate mentioning Sade), I think no book by him is actually on my shelves although I've read him. So I thought when I saw this on the cheap, I'd read it and fix that.

what I learned when I read this is Sade is really funny. I mean when you read 120 days of sodom you get so distracted by all the rape, murder, and debat

While waiting for "50 Shades of Gray" to come in at the library, I went on a little Sade kick! This just goes to show that by no means is society *more* perverse now.

“When a man loves a woman, as our old troubadours used to say, even if he has heard or seen something that puts his beloved in a bad light, he should believe neither his ears nor his eyes, he should listen to his heart alone.” 7 likes
“We magistrates find that reason is the easiest thing in the world to dispense with; banished from our law courts as it is from our heads, we delight in trampling it underfoot, and that is what makes our judicial sentences such masterpieces, since (although commonsense never presides in them) those sentences are carried out with as much firmness as if people knew what they actually meant.” 0 likes
