On Beauty and Love

From H. R. Rookmaaker: “Love is to make things that are right and fitting, to help our fellow-man, to make this world more beautiful, more harmonious, more suitable for human living, more suitable for expressing that inner beauty and love for which all men are seeking – even if, in despair, mankind often breaks it down, even if, in sin, we often destroy beauty and create ugliness. Beauty, as it were, is a by-product of love, of life in its full sense, of life in love and freedom.” (Modern Art and the Death of a Culture, p. 243). HT – Summit Ministries
