Quote of the Day...

"To burn always with this hard gem-like flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life."

Walter Pater, in his conclusion to his canonical The Renaissance encourages aesthetes and decadents alike to grasp fleeting moments with passion and intensity, to capture and preserve the richness of time in flux, and to take pleasure from those tiny perfect moments that are all to easily lost in everyday life.
