Living as Art

Currently consuming Emerson’s essay on Art… here’s my favorite little morsel from today:

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not. The best of beauty is a finer charm than skill in surfaces, in outlines, or rules of art can ever teach, namely, a radiation from the work of art of human character…”

My greatest work of art should be the life I lead.
