The above quote is from W.B. Yeats' poem "Sailing to Byzantium".
Aesthetics is the essence of life - life is beautiful! Sculpt thy life as an art - a never ending epic or a short and sensitive poem or an enduring melody or a beautiful painting - and don't miss to enjoy the beauty in it!
Clumsy and flimsy
Messy and fishy
Yet aromatic and romantic
Are the impromptu happenings...
Are the inevitable experiences...
Anihilated to deny the authenticity of id,
Too timid to accept the vulnerability,
Breaking into pieces never helps
Analytical skills diminish...
Why not cherish every bit of it
Treasure the fragments in sensible storage
Moments of impulsive joy
Are too short and rare to decipher
It is OK to enjoy
But not to intoxicate...
Because ruin is the road for emotionally driven souls!
Judicial norms of tradition and culture,
Social pattern of lifestyle,
Stoop down to the bumpy gravel road.
Can't live out the heart
Can't chase the dreams
Can't be original
One decision involves many souls;
Terms and conditions are always impossible
To read or write...
But not to sign blindly to follow the herd
What a life of mockery it is!
Let a beautiful soul awaken
To prove the truthfulness
Beyond the world of hypocrisy,
Let the living mankind arise
To light the dying soul...
Let the numbness of mundane shatter
Let the faith be reborn,
Let the rainbow colour the sky
After gloominess of hopelessness...
Let the dreams of joy come true,
Let the miracle emerge!
