“Divine beauty is absolute,
unqualified, and independent.
All created reality, precisely because
it is derivative of the Creator,
is beautiful in a secondary sense
and only to the degree
that it reflects the excellencies of God
and fulfills the purpose for which He has made it.
Perfect order, harmony, magnitude,
integrity, proportion, symmetry,
and brilliance are found in God alone.
There is in the personality and activity of God
neither clash of color nor offensive sound.
He is in every conceivable respect morally exquisite,
spiritually sublime, and aesthetically elegant.”
