"I have found a definition of the beautiful.
It is something intense and sad, something a bit vague...
a contradictory impression of an ardor...
and a desire for life together with a bitterness which flows
back upon them as if from a sense of deprivation and hopelessness.
I do not pretend that joy cannot associate with Beauty,
but I will maintain that joy is one of her most vulgar adornments, while Melancholy
may be called her illustrious spouse, so much so that I can scarcely
conceive a type of beauty which has nothing to do with sorrow."


William Basinki
