Quotations Regarding ENDYMION

Beauty is a manifestation of secret natural laws, which otherwise would have been hidden from us forever.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.
Beauty is our weapon against nature; by it we make objects, giving them limit, symmetry, proportion. Beauty halts and freezes the melting flux of nature.
Dear God! How beauty varies in nature and art.
In a woman the flesh must be like marble; 
in a statue the marble must be like flesh.
I don't think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains.
Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.
