Quote of the Day

From Terry Teachout:
"Beauty consists of an eternal, invariable element, whose quantity is excessively difficult to determine, and of a relative, circumstantial element, which will be, if you like, by turns or all together, the era, its fashion, its morals, its passions."

Charles Baudelaire, The Painter of Modern Life

I don't know that I agree with this: do you have thoughts?
