Beauty is transcendent. One should no more attempt to possess and own a beautiful object, idea, mind or person than one should attempt to bottle an ocean wave; a jar full of simple salty water is never again quite the same as the turbulent wilderness of its source. When we ourselves become owned by a beautiful idea (and what is beauty in essence, other than an idea or a perception of mind ?) we often enough fail to see that in aspiring to own, we ourselves become owned by the idea of that thing we initially sought to capture, to possess. To appreciate the beauty and symmetry of an idea or concept is enough for me – I do not need to own anything. One does not need to own a work of art to truly or fully understand or appreciate the deep beauty of its message.
