"Mr Arthur Symons is a very dirty-minded man, and his mind is reflected in the puddle of his bad verses. It may be that there are other dirty-minded men who will rejoice in the jingle that records the squalid and inexpensive amours of Mr Symons, but our faith jumps to the hope that such men are not."
Pall Mall Gazette : 2 Sep, 1895.
Art begins when a man wishes to immortalize the most vivid moment he has ever lived.
