Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful. Beauty is God’s hand-writing — a way-side sacrament; welcome it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower, and thank for it Him, the fountain of all loveliness, and drink it in, simply and earnestly, with all your eyes; it is a charmed draught, a cup of blessing.

Charles Kingsley (1819-1875) English clergyman, historian, essayist, novelist (pseud. "Parson Lot")
“The National Gallery,” Politics for the People #1 (6 May 1848) [as “Parson Lot”]

Often given as "Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting."
