Quote O’ The Day

When the poet Heinrich Heine married Eugenie Mirat in 1841, his friends were mystified. She was uneducated, rude, and vain. But Heine was smitten—at least at first. In his will, however, Heine left her his entire estate only on the condition that she remarry. Why? “Because then there will be at least one man who will regret my death,” he explained.
