And a poet said, Speak to us of Beauty.

And he answered:

All these things you have said of beauty,

Yet in truth you spoke not of her but of needs unsatisfied,

And beauty is not a need but an ecstasy.

People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.

But you are life and you are the veil.

The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran
