- “Beauty is a certain blossom of goodness, by the charms of which blossom, as a kind of bait, the hidden internal goodness attracts beholders. But since the cognition of our intellect takes its origin from the senses, we would never be aware of and never desire the goodness itself hidden in the heart of things if we were not attracted to it by the visible signs of external beauty.”
- -Ficino, Commentary on the Symposium (1484).
