The Difficult Art of Elegant Living and Taking Pleasure from the Contemplation of Beauty.
The cult of Beauty is the only chance to defend ourselves and what we hold most dear, from the pervasive, devastating exaltation of the ugly, the cacophonous and the unstructured. This is possible only on the condition of nurturing one’s personality with meaningful experiences and intense emotions, avoiding being influenced, as much as possible, by the influences of fashions and habits of conventional living.
Beauty begets harmony, which is the essence of good and right.
Also through my clinical experience as a psychologist and psychotherapist, I have developed the belief that contemplation of Beauty produces emotions that activate the libido by generating the creative force of ideas and actions.
