a pity beyond all telling is hid in the heart of love

The land of faery
Where nobody gets old and godly and grave,
Where nobody gets old and crafty and wise,
Where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue.

-W. B. Yeats (1865-1939), Irish poet. The Land of Heart's Desire.

Nothing is beautiful, only (wo)man: on this piece of naïvety rests all aesthetics, it is the first truth of aesthetics. Let us immediately add its second: nothing is ugly but degenerate (wo)man- the domain of aesthetic judgment is therewith defined.
-Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), German philosopher. Twilight of the Idols, "Expeditions of an Untimely Man," aph. 20 (1889).
