S.A. Quote: Beauty

“Could anyone really successsfully shield off beauty?”

Albert Luthuli – as quoted in The Penguin Dictionary of South African Quotations written by Jennifer Crwys-Wiliams

Beauty… beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The admiration of an object or person which ‘looks’ are pleasing to the eye and the mind of the individual who has acknowledged their own perspective of the object or person. But if the acknowledgement is one of admiration, why does it have to be shielded off…?

Why do we have to hide the beauty of things in order to protect them/it?

Why does it seem ‘okay’ for some to destroy beauty through their actions or even non-action…?

But how could we distinguish the beauty from it’s opposite the ugly … if it was not for the ugly, we could not acknowledge the beauty…

However, this in itself does not provide one to destroy the other … does it?

These days all you have to do is open a news channel timeline on any social media platform and within the first page, we find a story of another beauty that has been violated and/or destroyed by the ugly… And only in extreme cases do you find that there might be the mention of those who are trying to protect/shield the beauty from the destructive actions of the ugly, yet tomorrow there will be another beauty that has been violated by the destruction of the ugly.

We launch campaigns to create awareness on the subject of protecting the beautiful, we march and demand action to be taken towards its protection… we demand some sort of retribution as if it would erase the ugly form the situation … yet we forget that it is by our own in-action as a whole that gave rise to these circumstances in some way or form.

Maybe, we should just take a step back and refer back to nature… or rather nurturing and re-examen how we have been taught. May we should hold ourselves accountable towards each and every beauty and equally to each and every ugly … acknowledging their individual existence and leading them through our own example of how to appreciate each other. May then… just maybe two could exist in harmony without violation of either one…
