“the voice of beauty speaks softly”

franz-hals-lute
Franz Hals – The Lute Player (1623)

“One has to speak with thunder and heavenly fireworks to feeble and dormant senses. But the voice of beauty speaks softly: it steals into only the most awakened souls. Gently my mirror trembled and laughed to me today; it was beauty’s holy laughter and trembling”

– Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
