The Kites - What Characterises Grace? - Romain Gary

This quote was added by iamnotatypist
I had chosen aesthetics as the subject of my exams, and the examiner, who I imagine was worn out after a long day's work, said: "I shall ask you only one question. What characterises grace?" I thought of the Polish girl - her neck, her arms, her floating hair - and did not hesitate. "Motion." He gave me nineteen points out of twenty. I owe my baccalaureate to love.
