"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Aldous Huxley on Anne Roiphe

"Europe is so well gardened that it resembles a work of art, a scientific theory, a neat metaphysical system. Man has re-created Europe in his own image."
"Perhaps it's good for one to suffer. Can an artist do anything if he's happy? Would he ever want to do anything? What is art, after all, but a protest against the horrible inclemency of life?"
