    Fashion is the most intense expression of the phenomenon of neomania, which has grown ever since the birth of capitalism. Neomania assumes that purchasing the new is the same as acquiring value.... If the purchase of a new garment coincides with the wearing out of an old one, then obviously there is no fashion. If a garment is worn beyond the moment of its natural replacement, there is pauperization. Fashion flourishes on surplus, when someone buys more than he or she needs.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)

    He will trouble the thoughts of men
    yet for many an aeon,
    they will travel far and wide,
    they will discuss all his written words,
    his pen will be sacred.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
