Today's Quote

"Man is not civilized, aesthetically, until he has learned to value the semblance above the reality. It is indeed... in one sense the higher reality- the soul and life of things, what they are in themselves."
-Bernard Bosanquet

From Three Lectures on Aesthetic, a fascinating little book that I think was Bosanquet's only published study, and one I'd like to discuss here, if I ever have the time.
