„Love that, not man
Apart from that, or else you will share man's pitiful confusions,
or drown in despair when his days darken.“

—  Robinson Jeffers American poet 1887 - 1962
Context: Know that however ugly the parts appear the whole remains beautiful. A severed hand Is an ugly thing and man dissevered from the earth and stars and his history... for contemplation or in fact... Often appears atrociously ugly. Integrity is wholeness, the greatest beauty is Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things, the divine beauty of the universe. Love that, not man Apart from that, or else you will share man's pitiful confusions, or drown in despair when his days darken. "The Answer" (1936)
