Who can afford to live without beauty? Beauty fills us with passion; it graces us with joy and lights up our existence. A landscape, a piece of music, a film, a dance --- suddenly all dreariness is gone, we are left bewitched, we are dazzled. If we get lost in dark despair, beauty takes us back to the Center. With its colorful spontaneity, it regenerates our lives. Beauty challenges the force of gravity.[...] Embrace it, and all greed disappears, for in that moment you are completely disinterested, you are innocent.

Piero Ferrucci,
Inevitable Grace: Breakthroughs in the Lives of Great Men and Women: Guides to Your Self-Realization, p. 13
