"Accustomed to the quieter aspects of life, she turned to its tumultuous parts. She loved the sea only for the sake of its storms, and the green only when it was scattered among ruins. She had to gain some personal profit from things and she rejected as useless whatever did not contribute to the immediate satisfaction of her heart's desires– being of temperament more sentimental than artistic, looking for emotions, not landscapes."
– Madame Bovary, Gustave Flaubert
