Daily Insight:
Kakuzo Okakura: Adoration of the Beautiful

“Teaism is a cult founded on the adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence. It inculcates purity and harmony, the mystery of mutual charity, the romanticism of the social order. It is essentially a worship of the Imperfect, as it is a tender attempt to accomplish something possible in this impossible thing we know as life.”

― Kakuzo Okakura, The Book of Tea
