“I’m fascinated by beauty but I can’t describe what it really is. I don’t know beauty, I receive beauty all the time and as I receive it I recognize it. Beauty always takes my breath away. It doesn’t matter if I’m looking at a beautiful woman or a well shaped nutcracker; both of them cause me dizziness. “
