The goal of all my longing

“Moral principles are vital, yet so often we have to drive ourselves to do what is right.  Beauty, on the other hand, haunts us.  It draws and compels and gives…  I might respond to God as a great commander-in-chief but I could not give myself to him as the goal of all my longing and my supreme delight.”

(Richard Harries, Art and the Beauty of God: A Christian Understanding)
