the love of the form of that idea



As soon as pierre Gringoire had seen how this whole affair was turning, and that there would decidedly be the rope, hanging, and other disagreeable things for the principal personages in this comedy Hong Kong attractions, he had not cared to identify himself with the matter further.The outcasts with whom he had remained, reflecting that, after all, it was the best company in paris,--the outcasts had continued to interest themselves in behalf of the gypsy.He had thought it very simple on the part of people who had, like herself, nothing else in prospect but Charmolue and Torterue, and who, unlike himself, did not gallop through the regions of imagination between the wings of pegasus.From their remarks, he had learned that his wife of the broken crock had taken refuge in Notre-Dame, and he was very glad of it.But he felt no temptation to go and see her there.He meditated occasionally on the little goat, and that was all.Moreover, he was busy executing feats of strength during the day for his living, and at night he was engaged in composing a memorial against the Bishop of paris, for he remembered having been drenched by the wheels of his mills, and he cherished a grudge against him for it.He also occupied himself with annotating the fine work of Baudry-le- Rouge, Bishop of Noyon and Tournay, _De Cupa petrarum_, which had given him a violent passion for architecture, an inclination which had replaced in his heart his passion for hermeticism, of which it was, moreover, only a natural corollary, since there is an intimate relation between hermeticism and masonry Hong Kong Weather.Gringoire had passed from the love of an idea .

One day he had halted near Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois, at the corner of a mansion called "For-l'Evêque " (the Bishop's Tribunal), which stood opposite another called "For-le-Roi" (the King's Tribunal).At this For-l'Evêque, there was a charming chapel of the fourteenth century, whose apse was on the street.Gringoire was devoutly examining its exterior sculptures.He was in one of those moments of egotistical, exclusive, supreme, enjoyment when the artist beholds nothing in the world but art, and the world in art.All at once he feels a hand laid gravely on his shoulder.He turns round. It was his old friend, his former master, monsieur the archdeacon.

He was stupefied.It was a long time since he had seen the archdeacon hong kong tour guide, and Dom Claude was one of those solemn and impassioned men, a meeting with whom always upsets the equilibrium of a sceptical philosopher.
