Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it.
This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.
Everything that is made beautiful and fair and lovely is made for the eye of one who sees.

Woman is a ray of God. She is not that earthly beloved: she is creative, not created.
