David Hart on Beauty and Love

…beauty is present only where there has been love, but only vanity where the light of love has not fallen…love is necessary first, before beauty can be seen, for love is that essential “mood” that intends the world as beauty and can so receive it…

– The Beauty of the Infinite, p 238, 240
