"There is only one valuable thing in art: the thing you cannot explain."
"I hate only impulse, the breaking of line,
And I never will cry, nor will ever show smile."
Charles Baudelaire, ‘Beauty’, The Flowers of Evil
"Your laughter steeped in tears for no one’s eyes,
To bring amusement to the vulgar crowd."
Charles Baudelaire, ‘The Venal Muse’, The Flowers of Evil
