inner beauty...

"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.”
