It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
That pleasure which is at once the most pure, the most elevating and the most intense, is derived, I maintain, from the contemplation of the beautiful.
Edgar Allan Poe
I experience a period of frightening clarity in those moments when nature is so beautiful. I am no longer sure of myself, and the paintings appear as in a dream.
Vincent Van Gogh
A beautiful thing never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it.
What is really beautiful must always be true.
She said she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short.
To pay homage to beauty is to admire Nature; to admire Nature is to worship God
Nature is too thin a screen; the glory of the omnipresent God bursts through everywhere
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I didn't ask for it to be over, but then again, I never asked for it to begin. For that's the way it is with life, as some of the most beautiful days come completely by chance. But even the most beautiful days eventually have their sunsets.
