The philosopher Roger Scruton defined an element of beauty as having the ability to never fill you up. If something is beautiful, like a painting, you wish to return to look at the painting again and linger. It’s not a complete definition, but helps me ground the concept of Beauty.

Much like old architecture, I spend far longer looking at it than the modern varieties of buildings.
