Stendhal's Kite

"Beauty is a promise of happiness" - Stendhal

"In the particular case of promising, as with many other
performatives, it is appropriate that the person uttering
the promise should have a certain intention, viz. here
to keep his word." - J.L. Austin

Stendhal's Kite is published by The Thing Quarterly,
San Francisco.
