The wisdom of Jean Cocteau

          "Of course I believe in luck.
 How otherwise to explain the success of some people you detest?"
 Jean Maurice Eugène Clément Cocteau (1889-1963)

A writer, poet, librettist, filmmaker, bon vivant.....Cocteau was one of  the celebrated figures in the Bohemian culture of Europe.

His somewhat wry comment on the human condition is a comfort, I guess…..but not every time
