What They Said Saturday: A quote from 'Versailles: A Novel' by Kathryn Davis

"He cut my hair, I stepped on his foot.

When you look up, clouds; when you look down, the same. Blue sky and clouds, suddenly, water. Suddenly against the blue sky a spray of jewels.

Pardon, monsieur, I said. I did not mean to do it."

--Kathryn Davis, Versailles: A Novel
