Reading Icons

“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”

One thought on “Reading Icons

  1. Elisa Mon Roeder

    Well, many of them were just reading their lines. Also, it’s Vivien, not Vivian. And a picture of Marilyn Monroe reading (there are countless) would have looked great on your list. But the subject is interesting, it shows that they had both brains and beauty.
