THINKING ABOUT BEAUTY

One can’t “see” beauty except through love –
In fact, beauty will refuse to come into existence without its presence.

***

One can’t “recognize” beauty without truth
Because, without it, one can only make out a fuzzy, indistinct façade.

***

One can’t “enjoy” beauty without justice
Because injustice causes us to forget everything else.

***

Beauty is “fresh” … “fragile” … and always “temporary.”

***

Beauty is the most valuable thing that’s actually not a “thing.”

***

Beauty is like God – evanescent – so we’re often uncertain about its very presence.

***

Beauty’s central to what makes life worth living.
