I'm trying to find a quote that was a daily message a few (or more) months ago.

I seem to remember it as roughly- "Whenever I encounter something, I ask myself: Is there anything about this which is not beautiful? And the answer is no."

That is not the exact quote, but best as I can remember. I am having trouble finding it in the archives, search, or on Google. Does anyone remember this?

Thanks for the help! I really do appreciate it.

How about:

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. ~Confucius

Dear ((((((mornbecomes))))))

....welcome to the Peak!!!

...not sure if this quote is the one you mean...but its one of my faves...
Does a flower, full of beauty, light and loveliness say "I am giving, helping, serving?"
It is! And because it is not trying to do anything it covers the earth.
~ Krishnamurti
...I also found this one...
The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason.
~John Cage
US composer of avant-garde music (1912 - 1992)
...best of luck in finding that quote you want :) ...
