Quote from John O’Donohue

“In Greek, the word for “the beautiful” is to kalon.  It is related to the word kalein which includes the notion of ‘call’.  When we experience beauty, we feel called.  The Beautiful stirs passion and urgency in us and calls us forth from aloneness into the warmth and wonder of an eternal embrace.” –John O’Donohue
