A beautiful world

You live in a beautiful world. The more you appreciate and enjoy that beauty, the more beautiful it becomes.

Beauty is impossible to define and, at the same time, impossible to ignore. You know what it is without having to learn.

Beauty is much more than mere physical appearance. In fact, magnificent beauty can often be found in what appears to be plain and ordinary, when you explore it deeply enough.

Beauty can awe, inspire and astonish. Beauty can energize your spirit in ways that nothing else can.

One of the nicest things you can do for yourself is to give yourself the time and space to simply take in the beauty that is around you. Beauty asks nothing more than to be treasured, and when you let yourself experience it, beauty has much to give.

There is beauty stretching out in all directions. Dive deeply into it, and it will make you more.

— Ralph Marston
