"I believe, if I may be old-fashioned, I believe there’s such a thing as the search for beauty. A delight, and the nice things in the world. And I don’t think one should have to apologise for it. And I know that there are people for instance who don’t like Renoir because everything’s too sugary and sweet but I have nothing against a view of life that considers it worthwhile to pursue certain notions of beauty. I see nothing wrong with that, I see no reason to apologise."
