    St. Louis woman, wid her diamon’ rings,

    The whole fauna of human fantasies, their marine vegetation, drifts and luxuriates in the dimly lit zones of human activity, as though plaiting thick tresses of darkness. Here, too, appear the lighthouses of the mind, with their outward resemblance to less pure symbols. The gateway to mystery swings open at the touch of human weakness and we have entered the realms of darkness. One false step, one slurred syllable together reveal a man’s thoughts.
    —Louis Aragon (1897–1982)

    If Paris lived now, and preferred beauty to power and riches, it would not be called his Judgment, but his Want of Judgment.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)
