And in the heart joy was lord.
The absolute nakedness of a face, the absolutely defenceless face, without covering, clothing or mask, is what opposes my power over it, my violence, and opposes it in an absolute way, with an opposition that is opposition itself. The being that expresses itself, that faces me, says no to me by his very expression […]. [I]t is not the no of a hostile force or a threat; it is the impossibility of killing him who presents that face […]. The face is the fact that a being affects us not in the indicative, but in the imperative.
Emmanuel Levinas : “Freedom and Command,” in: Collected Philosophical Papers (via fuckyeahphilosophy)

I was just re-watching ‘Bright Young Things’, the film version of Evelyn Waugh’s ‘Vile Bodies’ and something in my head clicked when the main character invents a fake trend for bottle green bowler hats in his gossip column.

Doesn’t Cornelius Fudge, the Minister for Magic wear a lime green bowler…
