A Quote from The Book of Tea

"The dynamic nature of their philosophy laid more stress upon the process through which perfection was sought than upon perfection itself. True beauty could be discovered onlly by one who mentally completed the incomplete. The virility of life and art lay in its possibilities for growth. In the tea room it is left for each guest's imagination to complete the total effect in relation to himself." -- Kakuzo Okakura, The Book of Tea
