January 1, 2007: Milton on Deliciousness and Beauty - 0 Comments

"I would not taste thy treasonous offer; none
But such as are good men can give good things;
And that which is not good, is not delicious
To a well-governed and wise appetite."

"Beauty is nature's coin; must not be hoarded,
But must be current."

-- Milton, Comus, 1634.
