We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting. – Kahlil Gibran

…we too often focus only on the negative aspect of life, on what is bad. If we were more willing to see the good and the beautiful things that surround us, we would be able to change our families. From there, we would change our next-door neighbors and then others who live in our neighbourhood or city. We would be able to bring peace and love to our world which hungers so much for these things. – Mother Teresa

We live to seek what’s beautiful, and once we find it, our desire is to keep it, to preserve it forever if we could.

That’s why we take so many photographs. That is why we paint and do sculptures and so many works of art.

We want to capture that moment of beauty where we transcend the mundane and leap at once from time to eternity. We want to enter into that magical realm where we become free at last, where we not only touch the beautiful, but where we become one with it, and in finding the beautiful, we also find ourselves.

Leisure (By: William Henry Davies)

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think about these things. – Philippians 4:8 (WEB)
