Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope.

This thought is quite interesting because he is saying only those who find beauty will live beautifully. If you don’t see beauty in things in life you will not live beautifully. Also, there is some contraversy in this thought because no one can define what is beautiful to all. Some see beauty in nature and others see it in people or things made by man. Therefor anyone can live beautifully as long as they see beauty in some things in life. When it says “For these there is hope”, it is saying that without beauty there is no hope. It’s like Wilde is defining hope as beauty and vice versa. Anyone can be hopefull as long as they experience some type of beauty in their life because beauty is the essence of hope.
