    Every day, stop before something beautiful .........

    Every day, stop before something beautiful long enough to say, "Isn't that beautiful!"
    Source: A quote from Alice Freeman Palmer

    I know the meanings of each word but would you please be kind enough to clarify the whole meaning of the sentence?
    What was the author's goal by saying that?

    I think the quote tells us: "In the world we live in, we should pay much attention to beautiful things and never ignore them"

    Am I right?

    Thank you very much

    No, it says to admire something beautiful once a day. Not to "never" ignore beauty.
