Consider the word "elegance." What comes to mind? Ponder that question a moment.
We have the following suggestions:
Beautiful, harmonious, graceful, orderly, peaceful, calming, unique, expensive (valuable), and classic. Are these qualities that you find appealing? We dare to say that the answer is yes. So why don't we strive to achieve these, and once they are achieved shouldn't they be carefully preserved?
By contrast, it is unlikely that words like ordinary, common, haphazard, casual, clumsy, or rude came to your mind. Is it then safe to conclude that to achieve elegance, it requires a thoughtful, deliberate effort? By the same token, it may require some effort to fully appreciate elegance and even more effort to preserve it. At some point, it must be determined if the effort is worthwhile.
