My mother used to say to me, ‘You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you.’ And these words played and bothered me, I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume. It was something that I just had to be. And what my mother meant by saying that you can’t eat beauty is that you can’t rely on beauty to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul.

I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.

Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.
