“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it” – Confucius
Beauty can never be seen if one closes his mind and chooses to see what he think it is. Open-mindedness is the key to see the real beauty of one thing. Just like the beauty of Mother Earth. Nobody can entirely explain and express how beautiful Mother Earth is. Some people even chose to underestimate the nature.
“Beauty is certainly a soft, smooth, slippery thing, and therefore of a nature which easily slips in and permeates our souls” – Plato, Lysis

2.) Second Beach, Washington
“Beauty can be consoling, disturbing, sacred, profane; it can be exhilarating, appealing, inspiring, chilling. It can affect us in an unlimited variety of ways. Yet it is never viewed with indifference: beauty demands to be noticed; it speaks to us directly like the voice of an intimate friend. If there are people who are indifferent to beauty, then it is surely because they do not perceive it” – Roger Scruton, Beauty
