You are young, my son, and, as the years go by, time will change and even reverse many of your present opinions. Refrain, therefore, awhile from setting yourself up as a judge of the highest matters.

I know full well what ills I mean to do, but passion overpowers what counsel bids me.
Euripides (Medea)

Beauty addresses itself to sight, but there is also a beauty for hearing, as in music and poetry. But first of all, there is beauty in intelligence and virtue.
