Inward Eye

“Almost any intense emotion may
open our “inward eye” to the beauty
of reality. Falling in love appears to
do it for some people. The beauty
of nature or the exhilaration of artistic
creation does it for others. Probably
any high experience may momentarily
stretch our souls up on tiptoe, so
that we catch a glimpse of that
marvelous beauty which is always
there, but which we are not
often tall enough to perceive.”
