"At the same time the world truly is that primeval squalor. The beauty is, as Schopenhauer says, a "cheap glitter" that conceals the horror. But, of course, the beauty and the horror are the same thing, and we do carry with us a certain sense of that: the sense of shame." --"Shame, Beauty, and the Ambivalence of the Flesh, after Schopenhauer, C.G. Jung, Frederick Turner & Camille Paglia" by Kelley L. Ross, Ph.D

"Human life, like every bad article, has its outer side covered with false glitter."
