Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

You better choose your fights carefully, because you're not going to win them all:

... then Queen Esther answered, "If I have found favor with you, O king, and if it pleases your majesty, grant me my life - this is my petition. and spare my people - this is my request. For I and my people have been sold for destruction and slaughter and annihilation. If we had merely been sold as male and female slaves, I would have kept quiet, because no such distress would justify disturbing the king." King Xerxes asked Queen Esther, "Who is he? Where is the man who has dared to do such a thing?" Esther said, "The adversary and enemy is this vile Haman."

The book of Esther's a favorite of mine. The painting's entitled "The Feast Of Ester" (c. 1625) by Jan Lievens. His work often gets mistaken for Rembrandt's.

Did Lievens put the captions on there too?
