” The Link for Plato is beauty; for Socrates it is the Supreme Venustic of mind, for Timon a tyranny of the soul, for Plotinus a natural privilege, for Theophrastus a silent deception, for Solomon hidden fire and stealth waters, for Theocritus some squandered ivory, for Carneades a tormented kingdom; for me, it’s a cheerful sadness, a melancholic gaiety. ” ( Giordano Bruno )
