Rowan Williams on the relationship of truth and beauty, and how it relates to knowing and experiencing God. As Williams puts it, it is through beauty that we broaden the habits of the mind.
"There have been times when I think we do not desire heaven; but more often I find myself wondering whether, in our heart of hearts, we have ever desired anything else… All your life an unattainable ecstasy has hovered just beyond the grasp of your consciousness. The day is coming when you will wake to find, beyond all hope, that you have attained it."
- C. S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
