Good morning dear friend. It’s another glorious day and we have kept our friendship ablaze this long. I appreciate you every day.
Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.
In the world, there exists no aesthetic plane, not even the aesthetic plane of goodness.
All efforts to make politics aesthetic culminate in one thing, war.
Aesthetic life is not something sophisticated – that’s a humanistic lie. Aesthetic life is as integral to being human as building sandcastles on the beach and giving your children names.
In judging of a beautiful statue, the aesthetic faculty is absolutely and completely gratified by the splendid curves of those marble lips that are dumb to our complaint, the noble modeling of those limbs that are powerless to help us.
Art has the qualities of aesthetic beauty, purity, transcendence.
Love is an aesthetic, studded with fairy tales.
It’s odd that there is a high level of appreciation of nature. There is the aesthetic side that really loves nature and beauty.
Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
Your heart just breaks, that’s all. But you can’t judge, or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.
Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.
Not to live for the day, that would be materialistic — but to treasure the day. I realize that most of us live on the skin — on the surface — without appreciating just how wonderful it is simply to be alive at all.
I cannot consent that my mortal body shall be laid in a repository prepared for an Emperor or a King my republican feelings and principles forbid it the simplicity of our system of government forbids it.
There is a certain majesty in simplicity which is far above all the quaintness of wit.
Of Manners gentle, of Affections mild; In Wit a man; Simplicity, a child.
What I really appreciate is the people who come up and say, ‘Thank you for representing our country.’
Sunglasses are great, but I always feel a bit pretentious wearing sunglasses. I mean, I do love to wear them.
Personal beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of reference.
