Lita Cabellut


“It’s probably not just by chance that I’m alone.  It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he’s terribly strong.  And if he’s stronger than I, I’m the one who can’t live with him…   I’m neither smart nor stupid, but I don’t think I’m a run-of-the-mill person.  I’ve been in business without being a businesswoman, I’ve loved without being a woman made only for love.   The two men I’ve loved, I think, will remember me, on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness.  I’ve done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts, but with a taste for justice.”  - Coco Chanel 

In Saumur, France, for a couple of days.  Of course, Mme Chanel was born here.  Hence, this favorite quote by her along with memorable images of her by Barcelona painter, Lita Cabellut.
