"Pooh!" said des Hermies. "Dust is good for you. It tastes like stale biscuits and has the musty odour of old books; and that is not all, it has a velvety texture which cushions hard surfaces and, like a thin film of rain, it removes the harshness from colours which would otherwise be too bright or garish. It is simply the veil of oblivion, the membrane of neglect. With the exception of those wretches whose lot you have occasionally decried yourself, who could possibly mind dust?"

~ from The Damned (La-Bas), by J.-K. Huysmans
