"The only measure of wisdom, it seems to me today, is the measure of form. A lack of taste amounts to a lack of wisdom. In reality, everything that is full of vitality, that is, determined by nature, cannot be anything but harmonious and tasteful. In our country, just take a cross-section of the life of anyone of our people. I don’t care if they are average or prominent. Everything is tasteless."
"On The Edge of Reason", Miroslav Krleža
