The beautiful rests on the foundations of the necessary.There is not a more repulsive spectacle than on old man who will not forsake the world, which has already forsaken him.
T. S. Eliot
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the
spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with
his friendship. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
Beauty, though injurious, hath strange power,
After offence returning, to regain,
Love once possessed.
Milton, Samson Agonistes (1671)
