To say the word Romanticism is to say modern art - that is, intimacy, spirituality, color, aspiration towards the infinite, expressed by every means available to the arts. Charles Baudelaire
Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away. Arthur Helps
Few things tend more to alienate friendship than a want of punctuality in our engagements. I have known the breach of a promise to dine or sup to break up more than one intimacy. William Hazlitt
