„It is in the humble mindset that beauty and magic flow freely.“

Contexto: This magical universe is so faithful in waiting for us to get out of our own way. Many people do not realize that the sharpening of wit occurs when one humbles their wit. It is in the humble mindset that beauty and magic flow freely.

„Music should humbly seek to please; within these limits great beauty may perhaps be found.“

—  Claude Debussy French composer 1862 - 1918

Quoted in French Music : From the Death of Berlioz to the Death of Fauré (1951) by Martin Cooper, p. 136, and in Debussy and Wagner (1979) by Robin Holloway, p. 207
Contexto: Music should humbly seek to please; within these limits great beauty may perhaps be found. Extreme complication is contrary to art. Beauty must appeal to the senses, must provide us with immediate enjoyment, must impress us or insinuate itself into us without any effort on our part.

Darling you know just what I'm here for.
So you're scared and you're thinking

Show a little faith, there's magic in the night;
You ain't a beauty but hey you're all right.
Oh and that's all right with me.

„I saw the opportunity to show the beauty in the culture and show that these words sound magical. We’re so used to using Latin, but if J.K. Rowling saw magic in that, you can see magic in your own culture. And if you can see it, you can help other people to see it.“

„I did take away something that I had not fully possessed before: appreciation of the sheer beauty and miracle of being alive, and a humble set of values.“

Fonte: Alone (1938), Ch. 12
Contexto: Part of me remained forever at Latitude 80 degrees 08 minutes South: what survived of my youth, my vanity, perhaps, and certainly my skepticism. On the other hand, I did take away something that I had not fully possessed before: appreciation of the sheer beauty and miracle of being alive, and a humble set of values. All this happened four years ago. Civilization has not altered my ideas. I live more simply now, and with more peace.

„Let us rejoice, O my Beloved!
Let us go forth to see ourselves in Thy beauty,
To the mountain and the hill,
Where the pure water flows:“

Spiritual Canticle of The Soul and The Bridegroom
Contexto: Let us rejoice, O my Beloved!
Let us go forth to see ourselves in Thy beauty,
To the mountain and the hill,
Where the pure water flows:
Let us enter into the heart of the thicket. ~ 36
