the IDEAL

“All things excellent are as difficult as they are rare.”

(BARUCH SPINOZA)

 

Plato's idea of the beautiful:

that which isn't touched by deformity

disability, disillusion, corruption, ambition;

that which serves its innate nature.


the tripartite man, the pure thing

the Beautiful, the True, the One

everything parts of the whole

multiplicities of the One;

the desire of all men, ignorant or sage:

the desire for the Beautiful.
