Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (b.1864.11.24, Abblti, Tarn (near?); d.1901.09.09, Chateau de Malrome, near Langon, Gironde) aka "Henri-Marie-Raymond de Toulouse-Latrec Montfa" (a long name, for a short man) When young, a genetic defect manifested itself, and arrested his growth; he would (as is only PROPER in proper society) be castigated as "that dwarf". How tortured must have been his life; and from the flames the phoenix arrise, to be re-bourne. What is often nelected is that in order to be re-born, you (the phoenix) had to die. They always forget *that* don't they? Ahhh! the pain of this world is to much to be bourne forever!!! I can not stand it, I can not go on.
