Quote by Vera Nazarian
Why is wisdom so fair? Why is beauty so wise?Because all else is temporary, while beauty and wisdom are the only real and constant aspects of truth that can be perceived by human means.And I don't mean the kind of surface beauty that fades with age, or the sort of shallow wisdom that gets lost in platitudes.True beauty grips your gut and squeezes your lungs, and makes you see with utmost clarity exactly is before you.True wisdom then steps in, to interpret, illuminate, and form a life-altering insight.
This quote explores the inherent value of wisdom and beauty. It suggests that while most aspects of life are fleeting and impermanent, wisdom and beauty stand out as enduring and true. The quote differentiates between superficial beauty and shallow wisdom and instead emphasizes a deeper, profound impact that true beauty and wisdom have on an individual. It suggests that they have the capacity to evoke intense emotions, provide clarity, and lead to transformative insights that shape one's life. In essence, wisdom and beauty are celebrated as the only constants that humanity can perceive and connect with.

We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us. Ideas of the Stone Age exist side by side with the latest scientific thought. Only a fraction of mankind has emerged from the Dark Ages, and in the most lucid brains, as Logan Pearsall Smith has said, we come upon nests of woolly caterpillars. Seemingly sane men entrust their wealth to stargazers and their health to witch doctors. Giant planes throb through the stratosphere, but half their passengers are wearing magic amulets and are protected from harm by voodoo incantations. Hotels boast of express elevators and a telephone in every room, but omit thirteen from all floor and room numbers lest their guests be ill at ease.
