What are Beauty and Peace? The Ancient Philosophers Had Simple, Objective Definitions

Last edited 11th November 2015

Every now and then we all run across a description or definition of something that captures its truth, yet at the same time respects its mystery.

Last edited 16th July 2015

Last edited 17th June 2014
