“Beauty is the source of all things. . . . It is the great creating cause which bestirs the world and holds all things in existence by the longing inside them to have beauty . . . It is the longing for beauty which actually brings them into being.”                              — Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, The Divine Names(6th c.)
