Quote of the Day

“To name an object is largely to destroy poetic enjoyment. The ideal is to suggest the object. The magic charm of art requires not description, but rather evocation, allusion, suggestion. Only by abandoning the objects of earthly life can poetry and art achieve a universal musicality and a state of soul.”
-Stéphane Mallarmé (1842-1898)
