…Beauty in diversity
“No human face is exactly the same in its lines on each side, no leaf perfect in its lobes, no branch in its symmetry.
All admit irregularity as they imply change; and to banish imperfection is to destroy expression, to check
exertion, to paralyze vitality. All things are literally better, lovelier, and more beloved for the imperfections
which have been divinely appointed, that the law of human life may be Effort, and the law of human judgment, Mercy.”
– John Ruskin
