declared that there were
just two classes in the civilised world :
the naïve (or natural, spontaneous, uncorrupted)
and the sentimental (or filled with false sentiment,
hypocritical, corrupt). He was discussing poets
(presumably male), but the idea is worth expanding.
I know from experience that sentimental hearts
are mean, rococo, and that naivety in men
deprives them happily of all standing.
