Donald Peattie
printer friendly version
The beauty of a butterfly's wing, the beauty of all things, is
not a slave to purpose, a drudge sold to futurity. It is
excrescence, sperabundance, random ebullience, and sheer
delightful waste to be enjoyed in its own high right.

("An Almanac for Moderns," 1935)
