The English version of Manuscript Found in Accra will be published in the spring of 2013.
People always say: ‘It’s inner beauty that matters, not outer beauty.”
Well, that’s not true.
If it were, why would flowers put so much energy into attracting bees?
And why would raindrops transform themselves into a rainbow when they encounter the sun?
Because nature longs for beauty, and is only satisfied when beauty can be exalted.
Outer beauty is inner beauty made visible, and it manifests itself in the light that flows from our eyes.
The eyes are the mirror of the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden; and, like a mirror, they also reflect the person looking into them.
So if the person looking into someone’s eyes has a dark soul, he will see only his own ugliness.
