More From Gustave Flaubert
- "You can calculate the worth of a man by the number of his enemies, and the importance of a work of art by the harm that is spoken of it."
- "There are neither good nor bad subjects. From the point of view of pure Art, you could almost establish it as an axiom that the subject is irrelevant, style itself being an absolute manner of seeing things."
- "The true poet for me is a priest. As soon as he dons the cassock, he must leave his family."
