I came across this quote by Edgar Allan Poe:

“That pleasure which is at once the most pure, the most elevating and the most intense, is derived, I maintain, from the contemplation of the beautiful.”

Edgar Allan Poe

I believe he was paraphrasing(whether he realized it or not) this scripture:

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

There are too many things in this world to get our attention. Why not clear our cluttered minds of all the stuff that doesn’t fit in with the passage above?
