    I love good sense above all, perhaps because I have none.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)

    Everything depends on the value we give to things. We are the ones who make morality and virtue. The cannibal who eats his neighbor is as innocent as the child who sucks his barley-sugar.
    —Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)

    After Stéphane Mallarmé, after Paul Verlaine, after Gustave Moreau, after Puvis de Chavannes, after our own verse, after all our subtle colour and nervous rhythm, after the faint mixed tints of Conder, what more is possible? After us the Savage God.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
