"Yourself, you could initiate you into the mysteries of love. But I do not know if you’ll be able to achieve the ultimate level of this approach. I’m going to explain to you the steps. Try to follow me.To follow this path and reach his goal, he must begin at an early age to seek physical beauty. There are like one body and, on this occasion, say nice words. then to understand that the beauty of a body is like, as a sister, the beauty of another body. It should seek the beauty of form, which is in all bodies. Came to this truth, one must become a lover of all beautiful bodies, abandon the impetuous love for one, as something that deserves only contempt. Then, consider the beauty of the soul as more precious than body, until a beautiful soul, even in an unattractive body, we suffice to generate rhetoric. It will be led to consider Beauty in actions and laws to see that it is always the same in all cases. We happen to look at the beauty of the body as little.Finally, go to science and we discover beauty. We will then come to a global vision of beauty." Plato, translated from the French version of Plato into English.
