"We were made to enjoy music,
to enjoy beautiful sunsets,
to enjoy looking at the billows of the sea
and to be thrilled with a rose that is bedecked with dew...
Human beings are actually created for the transcendent,
for the sublime,
for the beautiful,
for the truthful...
and all of us are given the task
of trying to make this world a little more hospitable
to these beautiful things."
-- Desmond Tutu
