Beauty is the way in which the physical expresses the Divine— but the principle and law of Beauty is something inward and spiritual which expresses itself through the form.
– 23 August, 1933, Sri Aurobindo, Letters on Poetry and Art
What do you wish me to be, an artist, a literary man, or a poet?
A sadhak—all these things can be included in sadhana.
Sri Aurobindo, Letters on Poetry and Art
