A QUOTE YOU LOVE?
"A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:It's loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness; but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing."
This excerpt is taken from the poem “Endymion” by John Keats and I refer to it in my mind whenever I dwell on something beautiful... I believe true beauty is timeless.
