Pois o que é tudo senão o que pensamos de tudo?

Pois o que é tudo senão o que pensamos de tudo?

“Taste is formed in those moments when aesthetic emotion is massive and distinct ; preferences then grown conscious, judgments then put into words, will reverberate through calmer hours ; they will constitute prejudices, habits of apperception, secret standards for all other beauties. A period of life in which such intuitions have been frequent may amass tastes and ideals sufficient for the rest of our days. Youth in these matters governs maturity, and while men may develop their early impressions more systematically and find confirmations of them in various quarters, they will seldom look at the world afresh or use new categories in deciphering it.”
