But while the one tasted the beautiful only subtly, the other died after it with all his soul.
Theodor Fontane: "Before the Storm"
It is pleasant to live among sensitive people. You have the stamina to get to the bottom of complicated things, grasp them and understand them. Above all, however, they have a sense of style, of the elegance of sophisticated thoughts and theories. You don't use up your whole mind to penetrate complex thought structures, but still have enough of it to uncover the background, the derivations, the cross-connections and also their subtle contradictions.
