Aristotle on the subject/object relation.

“Let, let the sky color my eyes  /  Fill, fill the space between my ears  /  Creep, creep through the dead space of my lungs  /  Breathe, breathe its softness on my tongue”
Young Wonder, Tumbling Backwards
“Moreover, that which sees is in a way colored; for each sense organ is receptive of the object of perception without its matter.”
The Philosopher, De anima, III, 2

on moral and physical beauty.

Moral beauty is like physical beauty in the following way: some important and fundamental aspect of physical beauty is an objective feature of someone, and one’s ability to enhance it is severely restricted.
Therefore, ought does not imply can.
