" Beauty, God Himself, is the voice endlessly calling and so we see.
So we reach. Doubt the philosophies, doubt the prophecies, doubt
the Pharisees (especially the ones seen in mirrors), but who can doubt
this - Beauty Himself? Beauty requires no justification, no explanation;
it simply is and transcends. See beauty and we know it in the marrow,
even if we have no words for it: Someone is behind it. Beauty Himself
completes. This is what I'm famished for: more of the God-glory. The only
place we have to come before we die is the place of seeing God."
- Ann Voskamp in One Thousand Gifts Devotional
