"We should also attend to things like these, observing that even the incidental effects of the processes of Nature have their own charm and attraction. Take the baking of bread. The loaf splits open here and there, and those very cracks, in one way a failure of the baker’s profession, somehow catch the eye and give particular stimulus to our appetite. Figs likewise burst open at full maturity: and in olives ripened on the tree the very proximity of decay lends a special beauty to the fruit. Similarly the ears of corn nodding to the ground, the lion’s puckered brow, the foam gushing from the boar’s mouth and much besides - looked at in isolation these things are far from lovely, but their consequence on the processes of Nature enhances them and gives them attraction."
