“Ancient simplicity is gone…

The people of today

are satisfied

with nothing but finery.”

— Ihara Saikaku

“Do not buy finery or jewels, because books are worth more than they are. Adorn your understanding with their precious ideas, because there is no luxury that dazzles like the luxury of science.” — Luisa Capetillo
