Mangez des gâteaux plus souvent!
What assails you is never more than the irritated specter of the plenitude with which you did not manage to come to terms. - Pierre-Albert Jourdan
Make ready a pot of tea
for when the ghost is met,
then ask politely if...
there's still a crumb to get.
[Mangez des gâteaux plus souvent! is the slogan found on many, many (most? - I couldn't say - I haven't seen them all, though not for lack of trying) French pâtisserie boxes and bags, flourished over the charming depiction of a small boy unabashedly stuffing his face with sweets. I know Marie Antoinette actually said brioche and not cake - but the exhortation to eat cake more often thrills me in a revolutionary way nonetheless. ]
