Absolute catholicity of taste is not without its dangers.
It is only an auctioneer who should admire all schools of art.
An auctioneer is such a uniquely American thing.
I keep thinking in my head, perhaps it's not as American as I think, but it feels so Southern. It feels so American. Like, hundreds of years of American tradition is involved in it.
The auctioneer is talking for both people, and that's the big revelation about, 'Oh, that's what they're doing.' They're just doing it very fast, so you could kind of miss on that. He's speaking for you, because people in the crowd don't have a voice, so that's what really makes it compelling.
It is only an auctioneer who can equally and impartially admire all schools of art.
