Chapter 10, Page 8, Book 14



Sense of beauty is the gift of God, for which those who have received it in good measure can never be thankful enough.

Gertrude Jekyll

Having a sense for the beautiful things in life is like opening a package and finding some wonderful gift inside !  Being in the presence of a beautiful thing is truly something to be thankful for.  Just think of the power of a truly beautiful work of art, be it music, or poetry or painting.  I’ve discovered that even if you’re not exactly where you’d like to be, that doesn’t mean that life right now can’t be beautiful or enjoyable.

The trees swaying, the leaves blowing around on the ground, the waves crashing on the shore. The simplest of things have the most profound beauty.


The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

 Beauty is often found through looking into a newborn’s eyes, in the blooming of a flower, or even in paint peeling off an old fence. It’s often where you least expect it.


...life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about

Marilyn Monroe

I’ve never seen a smiling face that wasn’t beautiful

BEAUTY is indeed found in everything around us. I think one of the most beautiful sights are the changing colors of the leaves.
