Charles Pierre Baudelaire (April 9, 1821 August 31, 1867) was one of the most influential French poets of the nineteenth Century. He was also an important critic, and translator.
As a remedy against all ills; poverty, sickness, and melancholy only one thing is absolutely necessary; a liking for work.
Modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable.
Everything that is beautiful and noble is the product of reason and calculation.
