Looking for Beauty

I once heard an interview with a Holocaust survivor who had dedicated the rest of his life to the study and creation of beauty.

We take beauty for granted. It is not unusual for us to look past acts and surroundings that should cause a sudden pause in appreciation. How would our lives change if, rather than being attuned to the negative and so alert for insults, slights, and blunders, we instead made a serious effort to spot - and appreciate - beauty?
