And we must always beware of romance: of people who love nature, or flowers, or dogs, or babies, or pure adventure. It means they are getting into a love- swing where everything is easy and nothing opposes their own egoism. Nature, babies, dogs are so lovable, because they can’t answer back.
D.H. Lawrence  ...Love Was Once A Little Boy (1925)

Lawrence... we were in Zennor a couple of weeks ago, which he and Frieda had to leave at short notice because of their tactlessness. Opposed the Great war and then befriended Mussolini. The lesson is, don't take your guidance from writers - artists are terrible guides.

Sackers - it's not so much guidance as a contrast - sentiment is inherently manipulative.

Lawrence certainly didn't go big on democracy and his philosophy was incoherent, but he knew there are pieces missing from the jigsaw.
