What is beauty?

From the August 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The sweet sounds and glories of earth and sky, assuming manifold forms and colors,—are they not tangible and material? As Mind they are real, but not as matter. All beauty and goodness are in and of Mind, emanating from God; but when we change the nature of beauty and goodness from Mind to matter, the beauty is marred, through a false conception, and, to the material senses, evil takes the place of good.
