  • The act of being creative is a love hate thing – The Beauty and The Beast someone fetch a priest  (ref. David Bowie)
    Beauty and the Beast (French: La Belle et la Bête) is a traditional fairy tale. The first published version of the fairy tale was a rendition by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, published in La jeune américaine, et les contes marins in 1740. The best-known written version was an abridgement of her work published in 1756 by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, in Magasin des enfants, ou dialogues entre une sage gouvernante et plusieurs de ses élèves; an English translation appeared in 1757. The tale has perhaps been made most recently famous by the retelling in the 1991 Disney film.In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. liberated 12:47, April 7, 2011, from: http://en.wikipedia.org
