A nifty quote

September 27th, 2006

Many thanks to Hugh Agnew for this:

Bunglers and pedants judge art according to genre; they approve of this and dismiss that genre, but instead of genres, the open-minded connoisseur appreciates only individual works.

[Franz Grillparzer (1791-1872), Austrian author. Notebooks and Diaries (1820).]
