From Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, translated by Lee Fahnestock and Norman MacAfee.
His digestion was poor, and he had a weeping eye. But as his youth died out,
his gaiety increased; he replaced his teeth with jests, his hair with joy, his
health with irony, and his weeping eye was always laughing. He was dilapidated, but bedecked with flowers.
