“True beauty is something that attacks, overpowers, robs, and finally destroys.”
― Yukio Mishima
i personally don´t agree with this. “attack, overpower, rob, destroy”. i.e. pillage and plunder, is what all peoples of the earth did, enslave and be enslaved, for thousands of years. same thing, for thousands of years. however, the historical developments outside of that, that is real progress, they´re what makes life interesting.
