"All these things have you said of beauty. <br/>Yet in truth you spoke not of her but of needs unsatisfied, <br/>And beauty is not a need but an ecstasy. <br/>It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand stretched forth, <br/>But rather a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted. <br/>It is not the image you would see nor the song you would hear, <br/>But rather an image you see though you close your eyes and a song you hear though you shut your ears. <br/>It is not the sap within the furrowed bark, nor a wing attached to a claw, <br/>But rather a garden for ever in bloom and a flock of angels for ever in flight. <br/>People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face. <br/>But you are life and you are the veil. <br/>Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. <br/>But you are eternity and your are the mirror." – Kahlil Gibran
