Looking for Beauty

“You say you’re looking for beauty, but this isn’t the way to achieve it, my dear friend. You won’t find it while you look to yourself, as if everything revolved around you. It’s exactly the other way around. You mustn’t be careful, you must get hurt. Unless you allow the beauty you seek to hurt you, to break you and knock you down, you’ll never find it.”
