Wisdom needs the sugar of beauty to penetrate because it can be a bitter pill. It tells us not to get too attached to who we believe we are, because life might tell us otherwise. It urges us to change our perspective when we just want things to be different, and it tells us to change things when we wish we could just change our perspective.
Wisdom pushes us to look into all of our uncomfortable places we just don’t want to look at, all of those places where we are a part of the problem and we are so convinced everyone else is except us.
No wonder we need beauty, otherwise, we could fall prey to a very unwise life.
