Know that however ugly the parts appear/the whole remains beautiful. A severed hand/ Is an ugly thing, and man dissevered from the earth and stars/and his history... for contemplation or in fact.../ Often appears atrociously ugly.
Integrity is wholeness/ the greatest beauty is Organic wholeness/the wholeness of life and things/the divine beauty of the universe./Love that, not man apart from that/or else you will share man's pitiful confusions,
or drown in despair when his days darken.
