A Quick Musing On Beauty And Truth

John Keats famously concluded "Ode on a Grecian Urn" with the lines "Beauty is truth, truth beauty--that is all/ Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."  The King James Bible linked truth and beauty over 200 years before Keats penned his famous lines.

I suppose it could just be the English accent, but I don't think so.
