“Kitsch causes two tears to flow in quick succession. The first tear says: How nice to see children running on the grass!
The second tear says: How nice to be moved, together with mankind, by running children on the grass!
It is the second tear that makes kitsch kitsch.
The brotherhood of man on earth will be possible only on a base of kitsch.”
- Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Part Six Chapter Eight.
