“I am joyful and light of heart! I reveal to you dazzling prospects with paradises in the clouds and distant felicities. I fill your hearts with the eternal follies, plans for happiness, projects for the future, dreams of glory, declarations of love & virtuous resolutions. I urge you to embark on perilous travels and vast undertakings … to search for new perfumes, bigger flowers, unknown pleasures.” – Gustave Flaubert
