„Flaubert spoke true: to succeed a great artist must have both character and fanaticism and few in this country are willing to pay the price.“

—  Cyril Connolly, livro The Unquiet Grave

Part III: La Clé des Chants (p. 93)
The Unquiet Grave (1944)
Contexto: Flaubert spoke true: to succeed a great artist must have both character and fanaticism and few in this country are willing to pay the price. Our writers have either no personality and therefore no style or a false personality and therefore a bad style; they mistake prejudice for energy and accept the sensation of material well-being as a system of thought.
