Quote – “Of Objective Ugliness” – 7/21/2020

“Beauty has no way to improve, without love. Without the care that goes into repairing wounds, being on the flesh of a beautiful form, there will be objective ugliness. For ugliness is made objective, opposite from what is beautiful, due to the innate knowledge that what has been made ugly, has been without love, been without care. For to love, would mean to love beauty. We perceive ugliness in its objective fashion when we comprehend that what is ugly has been neglected. It is the same when we see a child, emaciated upon the roadway, starving to death without caregivers. We say to it that it is a sorry sight, an ugly sight, because the child has been neglected.”
