Quote of the Day: Confucius

October 10th, 2010

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

~ Confucius

I was walking down the hallway one evening and saw the light shining in on a pitcher that I had thrown some carrots, broccoli, and basil in and was amazed at how beautiful it was.

Have you noticed anything beautiful lately that wouldn’t necessarily be classified as beautiful?
