Approach to beauty

From Wiki Shangri-La

"And how to approach beauty ourselves?"

"It is easy to discourse, but more difficult to admit beauty into life’s household.
But while we ourselves deny entrance to beauty in our life,
what value will all these affirmations possess?
They shall be meaningless banners at an empty hearth.

Admitting beauty into our home,
we must determine the unquestionable rejection of vulgarity and pompousness,
and all which opposes beautiful simplicity."
