    There is a quality even meaner than outright ugliness or disorder, and this meaner quality is the dishonest mask of pretended order, achieved by ignoring or suppressing the real order that is struggling to exist and to be served.
    Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)

    The pleasure we derive from the representation of the present is due, not only to the beauty it can be clothed in, but also to its essential quality of being the present.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    Emperor Joseph II: Your work is ingenious. It’s quality work, and there are simply too many notes, that’s all. Just cut a few and it will be perfect.
    Mozart: Which few did you have in mind, majesty?
