Charles Baudelaire Quote: “All fashions are charming, or rather relatively charming, each one being a new striving, more or less well conceived, after beauty, an approximate statement of an ideal, the desire for which constantly teases the unsatisfied human mind.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Any newspaper, from the first line to the last, is nothing but a web of horrors, I cannot understand how an innocent hand can touch a newspaper without convulsing in disgust.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The form of a town changes more swiftly alas! Than the heart of a mortal.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The more one works, the better one works, and the more one wants to work. The more one produces, the more fertile one grows.”

But be drunk.”
