A Quote by Philip James Bailey on beauty, darkness, god, good, happiness, heaven, kiss, and love

Ask not of me, love, what is love? Ask what is good of God above- Ask of the great sun what is light- Ask what is darkness of the night- Ask sin of what may be forgiven- Ask what is happiness of Heaven- Ask what is sweetness of thy kiss- Ask of thyself what beauty is.
