"Harmony is that which makes beauty; beauty in itself has no meaning. An object that is called beautiful at one time or place may not be beautiful at another. And so it is with thought, speech, and action. That which is called beautiful is only so at a certain time and under certain conditions that make it beautiful. So if one could give a true definition of beauty, it would be harmony. Harmony in a combination of colors, harmony in the drawing of a design or line, that is what is called beauty. And a word, a thought, a feeling, or an action which creates harmony is productive of beauty."
