Final Beauty

Beauty will save the world.

-Dostoevsky, The Idiot

I read these words recently not in Dostoevsky, but in an article in Conversations Journal (no longer published, but its vol 14.2 if you are interested). The article was part of a whole issue entitled “Created to Create” (which has a beautiful array of pieces about art, beauty and faith). These words were in a commencement address by Makoto Fujimura (artist, writer, speaker) given to Messiah College, urging them to refuse to live without beauty.

I thought it was a fitting end to the February Beautiful series.
