Throw away as much as you can of what you know, and you might at last be able to see.
– David Rothenberg –
‘We have to investigate, to delve into beauty; rather than pick it apart in such a way that it dies, we must inhabit the wonder that is in the world, recognize it, love it in moments of both bliss and investigation.
The beautiful is the root of science and [of] art, the highest possibility that humanity can ever hope to see.’
