Beauty & Aesthetics of Life

This might surprise some, but under the shell of this bitter, disillusioned and disenchanted scholar lies a warm heart.
No, really.
And what do I mean by this? That I possess the ability to appreciate just as strongly as I may deprecate.
The value of experience, especially of beauty, lies in the fragility of its transience, and thus inherent rarity.
What we find beautiful varies between all of us, naturally.
However, the exact circumstances of the things (objects, people, world) we find beautiful can never occur identically twice; the perfect combination of timing and appreciation of living (in the reflection of beauty) is never quite the same again.
Humans are at their greatest when thinking in abstract.
