My tooth fell out and cracked into three pieces. I tried to carry it around in my hand, in my pocket, in a little satchel, but again and again it grew thinner and smaller and lost. People stepped on it, it got covered in dust, fell behind things and in cracks. This happened in a dream.

I feel pale and in need of meat and bread.

"In the multiplied objects of the external world I had no thoughts but for the teeth. For these I longed with a phrenzied desire such that all other matters and strayed interests became absorbed in their single contemplation..."

"...I shuddered as I assigned to them in imagination a sensitive and sentient power, and even when unassisted by the lips, a capability of moral expression.

Of Mademoiselle Salle it has been well said, "Que tous ses pas etaient des sentiments, ("Her every step was an attitude") " and of Berenice I more seriously believed que toutes ses dents etaient des idees. Des idees! (that all her teeth were thoughts. Thoughts!)
