I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.  ’Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
    —    Thomas Paine
[While I agree with Paine – in general – on the admirable traits required to accomplish great things.  I am equally reminded of the saying (I made up based on the title of a Star Trek – Original Series episode): “there is no truth in beauty, although there is a beauty in truth“.    Anyway, I would caution readers the above quote is equally valid for many mass murderers and terrorists – maybe even more so.     —    KMAB]

As my father used to tell me growing up, ‘Play it beautiful, play it beautiful.’  He said, ‘I don’t care if you don’t hit all the notes.  If you don’t move a person’s heart, it’s not music.

Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.
    —    David Hume
[I would argue this is only true for subjective beauty.  A person’s beautiful inner spirit exists even when no one else contemplates it.  But, that’s just my view.    —    KMAB]

Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming.  This is a fault.
Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated.  For these there is hope.
They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty.
There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book.
Books are well written, or badly written.  That is all.
