Why We Like Horses

In an excellent new book by Lou Markos, Restoring Beauty: the Good, the True, and the Beautiful in the Writings of C.S. Lewis, I just came across this quote from C.S. Lewis's "The Weight of Glory":
We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words - to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.

  1. That's a lovely quote, and you are so right; that is just what horses give us.
