If glass is a perfect symbol for the present age, it is because we, too, desperately want to stay static. We too believe that real beauty consists, not in character or wisdom, but of a perfect facade and a shimmering reflection…The problem is, of course, that we are not made of glass but of flesh. We are not made to last but to fade. We are not made solely to be admired, but also to be loved.~Mark DooleySource: Moral Matters, 12.6.2013
