"There are times when beauty reveals itself slowly.
Human culture seems to build its temples of meaning
in the wrong places, in the garish marketplaces
of transient fashion and public image. Beauty tends to avoid
the siren call of the obvious. Away from the blatant center,
it prefers the neglected margin. Beyond the traffic of
voyeuristic seeing, beauty waits until the patience
and depth of a gaze are refined enough to engage
and discover it. In this sense, beauty is not a quality
externally present in something. It emerges at the threshold
where reverence of mind engages the subtle presence
of the other person, place or object.”
