Hello. :-)

“Art is both the taking and giving of beauty; the turning out to the light the inner folds of the awareness of the spirit. It is the recreation on another plane of the realities of the world; the tragic and wonderful realities of earth and men, and of all the inter-relations of these.” (Ansel Adams)

“Beauty is one of the rare things that do not lead to doubt of God.” (Jean Anouilh)

“A dominant impulse on encountering beauty is to wish to hold on to it, to possess it and give it weight in one’s life. There is an urge to say, ’I was here, I saw this and it mattered to me.” (Alain de Botton)
