Grace is a form of beauty.
It is sometimes a line,
sometimes a movement,
that has a sense of charm, ease, and kindness.
It attracts us.
Some say it has a divine connection,
so the word is often found in relation to
theological concepts: divine grace.
The word grace comes from Latin gratia,
which means favor or pleasing.
|Grace Kelly, 20th c. actress and Queen|
Many philosophers write about grace.
Plato wrote about poets writing under the influence of the Graces.
Malebranche wrote a Traité de la nature et de la grâce
(Treatise on Nature and Grace) (1680).
Edmund Burke wrote in his treatise on aesthetics,
A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin
of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful (1757),
that the grace of line of beautiful objects
applies to the curves of the female body.
Love is listed as synonym for grace.
May every being embody the Right to Grace.
