useless objects

by appointment or by chance

"the only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it. all art is quite useless." oscar wilde

"it is the useless things that make life worth living and that make life dangerous too: wine, love, art, beauty. without them life is safe, but not worth bothering with." stephen fry
