Beauty or Glamour?
"The majesty of beauty is its gracious wholesomeness."
"It has become the habit of our times
to mistake glamour for beauty."
This concern is expressed trenchantly
by Robert C. Morgan:
'Beauty is not glamour.
'Most of what the media…
the fashion world…
the art world has to offer is glamour.
'Glamour, like the art world itself,
is a highly fickle and
commercially driven enterprise
that contributes to…the "humdrum".
'It appears and disappears…
'No one ever catches up to glamour.'"
John O'Donohue in
Beauty: The Invisible Embrace
