Cynicism is intellectual dandyism without the coxcomb's feathers.
George Meredith (1828-1909), British author. Clara Middleton, quoting Mr. Whitford, in The Egoist, ch. 7 (1879).
Clara adds: "It seems to me that cynics are only happy in making the world as barren to others as they have made it for themselves."
