Somerset Maugham’s Words of beauty

“This is not a beauty that steals upon you unawares, that flatters and soothes your bruised spirit, this is not beauty that can hold in your hand and call your own and put in its place among familiar beauties that you know, it is a beauty that batters you and stuns you and leaves you breathless, there is no calmness in it nor control, it is like a fire that on a sudden consumes you and you are left shaken and bare and yet by a strange miracle alive.”

W. Somerset Maugham

These beautiful lines just touched my heart and all I can think of is the place where I felt the same, the Himalayas….
