“Art is the imposing of a pattern
on experience, and our aesthetic
enjoyment is recognition
of the pattern.”
— Alfred North Whitehead
“There is in all things a pattern that is part of our universe. It has symmetry, elegance, and grace – these qualities you find always in that the true artist captures. You can find it in the turning of the seasons, the way sand trails along a ridge, in the branch clusters of the creosote bush, of the pattern of its leaves. We try to copy these patterns in our lives and in our society, seeking the rhythms, the dances, the forms that comfort.” — Frank Herbert

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
Awesome quote! Mary, thank you for sharing. I am headed out for a morning walk at a nearby nature park so I might observe a few patterns that God left for me to discover.
Enjoy your walk. Hope you discover many of God’s patterns left for you!🙂
