Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.” St. Augustine.

Serenity

“What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter – a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.” Henri Matisse

Wisdom of a Tree

A tree says: “My strength is trust. I know nothing about my fathers, I know nothing about the thousand children that every year spring out of me. I live out the secret of my seed to the very end, and I care for nothing else. I trust that God is in me. I trust that my labor is holy. Out of this trust I live.” Herman Hesse, Bäume. Betrachtungen und Gedichte
