Beaumont Alberta Canada- By Mark Pickup- John Keats (1795-1821) said, “I have loved the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had time, I would have made myself remembered.” He underestimated the impact of his short life. Although John Keats suffered from tuberculosis and died at the age of 25, he is generally considered to be one of England’s greatest poets. His poetry is unparalleled in dignity, melody and sheer richness of imagery.
Attitude of gratitude
Most of us will never be great poets or even remembered for very long after we die. But each of us can, if we choose, “love the principle of beauty in all things.” Each of us can perpetuate the ideal of looking for beauty in all things, by setting an example for others.
It’s all a matter of how we look at life. If we look for the ugliness in all things we will find it: If we look for the beauty in all things, we will find that too.
