Si le viol, le poison, le poignard, l’incendie,
N’ont pas encor brodé de leurs plaisants dessins
Le canevas banal de nos piteux destins,
C’est que notre âme, hélas! n’est pas assez hardie.
– “Au Lecteur”
There is no reincarnation and no person can speak knowledgeably about the existence of an afterlife. The enlightened (and enlightenment-seeking) soul is, therefore, compelled to extract all it can from this life. Decadent Set is dedicated to promulgating and enabling the noble and eternal need of every truly human being to live life to the fullest – to become aware of the beauty of the world and to understand our place in it.
“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,” – that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
– “Ode on a Grecian Urn”
