beauty quote
“Nothing of beauty dies without having purified something, nor can aught of beauty be lost.  Let us not be afraid of sowing it along the road.  It may remain there for weeks or years but, like the diamond, it cannot dissolve, and finally there will pass someone whom its glitter will attract.  He will pick it up and go his way rejoicing.  Then why keep back a lofty, beautiful word, for that you doubt others will understand?  An instant of higher goodness was impending over you.  Why hinder its coming, even though you believe not that those about you will profit thereby?  What if you are among the men of the valley?  Is that sufficient reason for checking the instinctive movement of your soul toward the mountain peaks?”

-Maurice Maeterlinck

    Beauty can come from everywhere. A comment, a gesture, an outlook, a compliment. Thanks Shawn for sharing the meaning of beauty with us.

    Thank you Shawn for your wonderful quotes on Beauty.
    I believe beauty comes from within your heart and soul, it can be an expression of love for all human life and all of creation. It can come from the touch of a hand, a hug or kiss, a loving gesture towards those in need. It comes when you first hear a new born baby cry, or a sigh from the one you love. It is holding your loved one in your arms when they take their last breath. These are all treasured moments that hold our heart and soul in reference to the wonderful experience of love and the beauty that exists within these special moments….

    Take care always, Lee
