On cellar door:

"Poetry, in fact, is two quite distinct things," H. L. Mencken wrote in a 1920 magazine column. "It may be either or both. One is a series of words that are intrinsically musical, in clang-tint and rhythm, as the single word cellar-door is musical. The other is a series of ideas, false in themselves, that offer a means of emotional and imaginative escape from the harsh realities of everyday."

"This famous linguist once said that of all the phrases in the English language, of all the endless combinations of words in all of history, that Cellar Door is the most beautiful." - 'Karen Pommeroy', Donnie Darko

A poetic device. . . beautiful, emotional. . . a means to escape.
