Beauty as a human calling:
“Beauty isn’t all about just nice loveliness, like. Beauty is about more rounded, substantial becoming. So I think beauty, in that sense, is about an emerging fullness, a greater sense of grace and elegance, a deeper sense of depth, and also a kind of homecoming for the enriched memory of your unfolding life.”
John O’Donohue in conversation with Krista Tippett for On Being – The Inner Landscape of Beauty – just before his untimely death in 2008.
