The life of appreciation is just as real as the life of the understanding. Wordsworth, who stands beside the lake, watching the wealth of golden daffodils nodding in the breeze, is just as truly related to that aspect of nature, as the scientist who picks the flowers to pieces, counts their petals and tells you their physical structure and history. So when you look up to an ideal, love it and seek to realize it, you actually produce changes in the material world, and are as truly related to reality as is possible in the life of the understanding. Similarly the relation to another life in love is even deeper than the intellectual judgment of character. Still deeper in beauty is the harmony of an organism to its function or of a thing made to its' purpose. Since art must take its' forms from nature and appeal only through the senses, the principle holds for appreciation of beauty in art as well. Thus it is possible to show the elements of beauty and the conditions of our appreciation of ...more

Hi Anu, Average person who has emotions love the beauty around and cares for it. But unfortunately he is not able to do any thing special for it .With increase of population and needs of people most of the Natural beauty is ignored or is getting used up .Just think of the labourers working on the construction areas as masons, From morning to evening , sometimes in scorching heat, they will be just cementing bricks one above the other.There will be other labourers ,both men and women, passing the conceret mix from ground level to to higher levels. They do it just to earn money and to make their homes run .Even if they wish to enjoy the beauty around ,is it not possible for them The same is case of every man working as a busy bee from morning to evening ,in his/her way to make a living.

What beauty? Living or non-living beauties?

Living beauties (except children)
You know unscrupulous fellows treat genuine sincere appreciation of beauty as a step for coming close? Why give them a chance invite one's own trouble? But, the spotted dear, the peacocks, the birds, they are not bothered for our appreciation. We are privileged to watch them.

Man-made beauties - Big architectural marvels to small huts
Always I / we appreciate it. Even the pettiest things. But our minds are crammed with so much worldly matters, that we cannot gather ourselves up to notice the value of such things. Your concern is right. We hardly have mind to appreciate the lighter side of life.

Natural beauty
Nature serves us. But we don't appreciate the needs of the nature. Look at the global warming, environmental pollution, deforestation .......... We only take but don't give back. We are selfish. They say even the highest point of the earth i.e Mt Everest has been dirtied by the climbers.

Its my nature i cant resist the temptation to be thoughtful and appreciative of such beauty . After all the almighty has made such scenes and sceneries for seeing and appreciating them . In the process we come to know His splendid arts and wonderful creative power and get a chance to praise and enchant some verses in His memory.
