"Lysias is the finest products of the Athenian artistic spirit: what a course it ran from Gorgias' poetic style to that of Lysias! The combination of consciousness and naiveté is always one of the highest accomplishments and hard to attain; almost never directly, but by long detours and aberrations; common taste despises simplicity as 'boring', while the noblest taste feels a repugnance for the ornate and bombastic; the genus tenue always results from a certain reaction; just as admiration of Lysias always presupposes such a feeling."
