A truth and noonday light to thee.”

“No radiant pearl which crested Fortune wears,
No gem that twinkling hangs from Beauty’s ears,
Not the bright stars which Night’s blue arch adorn,
Nor rising suns that gild the vernal morn,
Shine with such luster as the tear that flows Down
Virtue’s manly cheek for others’ woes.”
Erasmus Darwin. 1731-1802. Part ii. Canto iii. Line 459.

So much had been said about beauty in the past, and throughout history, this subject was very important and I do wish there would be shown much more care about beauty nowadays.
Value it, and save it everywhere because we are talking about beauty in general, beauty all over us, which we often do not even notice. We should notice all beautiful, every tiny bird flying about our heads, every tint flower growing in a ditch, every piece of green grass…
I wish nowadays society would take a step back into re-learning more about beauty, too much ugliness is around us, which ongoing is destroying today’s and tomorrow’s generation. People losing their softness and warmth towards each other, which is a highly human aspect. Think about it…
Thank you!
Best regards, 
Maya
