“Beauty?  I don’t use the word beauty anymore.  Never.  It’s not that the thing itself is beautiful.  It’s the relationship that you establish that makes something beautiful.  And so the word ‘beautiful’ is not an absolute.  It’s a moment, I would say.  It’s more like a moment in which you look at something and you feel alive, you feel that you are enjoying something.  And that is a moment of poetry, pleasure, revelation, thinking.” – Gabriel Orozco
