Si permanecemos tranquilos y lo bastante preparados, encontraremos compensación en cada contrariedad


Diario 23 de Septiembre de 1838

La percepción de la belleza es un "test" moral


(traducción Guillermo Ruiz)

“Nature has looked uncommonly bare & dry to me for a day or two. With our senses applied to the surrounding world we are reading our own physical and corresponding moral revolutions. Nature was so shallow all at once I did not know what had attracted me all my life. I was therefore encouraged when going through a field this evening, I was unexpectedly struck with the beauty of an apple tree — The perception of beauty is a moral test.”

Journal June 21, 1852
