The ‘Spiritual Music’ of a Beautiful World

“This is why almost all men and women, even those who are quite unhappy, nevertheless cling to life. They cannot bear to lose sight of such a beautiful and lovely world. They know instinctively that every moment of life has its own beauty—which we usually don’t appreciate, but that when we are faced with losing it, we would rather continue living in pain and misery than give up the chance to see any more of those beauties at all.” — Jonathan Edwards
