“The first thing to say is maybe
that you can’t intend to make anything beautiful. It’s either beautiful or not beautiful,
it just happens to be so. I think it has more
to do with the way something is conceived,
if it’s well conceived it’s certainly beautiful,
so when we say that something is beautiful
we say that it’s well conceived.”
