H.L. Mencken
“An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it makes a better soup.”
H.L. Mencken, A Book of Burlesques

Charles Baudelaire
“—Lindo perro mío, buen perro, chucho querido, acércate y ven a respirar un excelente perfume, comprado en la mejor perfumería de la ciudad.
Y el perro, meneando la cola, signo, según creo, que en esos mezquinos seres corresponde a la risa y a la sonrisa, se acerca y pone curioso la húmeda nariz en el frasco destapado; luego, echándose atrás con súbito temor, me ladra, como si me reconviniera.
—¡Ah miserable can! Si te hubiera ofrecido un montón de excrementos los hubieras husmeado con delicia, devorándolos tal vez. Así tú, indigno compañero de mi triste vida, te pareces al público, a quien nunca se ha de ofrecer perfumes delicados que le exasperen, sino basura cuidadosamente elegida.”
Charles Baudelaire, Paris Spleen
