Blessed Are Those

"Blessed are those who possess taste, even though it be bad taste! - And not only blessed: one can be wise too, only by virtue of this quality; which is why the Greeks, who were very subtle in such things, designated the wise man with a word that signifies the man of taste, and called wisdom, artistic and practical as well as theoretical and intellectual, simply 'taste' (sophia)." -Friedrich Nietzsche
