"Princess with Vultures"
Oil on Canvas - 1893
Henry Justice Ford
"I have no regrets for masterpieces unwritten, for genius unfulfilled. It has long seemed abundantly clear to me that I was born into a dying, if not already dead, civilization, whose literature was part of the general decomposition; a heap of rubble scavenged by scrawny English Lit. vultures, and echoing with the hyena cries of Freudians looking for their Marx and Marxists looking for their Freud."
--Malcolm Muggeridge, Chronicles of Wasted Time
