"Something I find devastatingly beautiful; an unguarded smile, thrown across the chasm between two pillows in the morning, the crisp taste of thick air in one’s lungs, and the vastness of the planet stretched out before you, limitless in it’s expanse. The freedom to explore."

"I find my mom’s smile absolutely beautiful"

"What is devastatingly beautiful to me is the serendipity of a housemate’s smile, or the perfectly timed nerdy joke when hanging out with my brothers tonight… when minds and hearts meet and dance beneath the obstructions of confusion and judgment and extra analysis (I’m prone to both). Tonight there was running through the rain to get my brother’s boyfriend vegan “chicken” he loves from the place down the road while we were gathering for dinner."

I personally find this story of a Leopard befriending a baby baboon after eating its mother devastating beautiful. Of course the end is only devastating, but the moments leading up to the cruel reality of nature are quiet moving. Also the documentary is narrated by scar from lion king so the irony is absolutely decadent.

I believe that a young woman alone at a piano, playing La Campanella (Franz Liszt) would most likely qualify as devastating beautiful

"I like to think devastating beauty is everyday life. All of this around us is quite spectacular. If you think about it the very mapping of you was conceived in the first appearance of life. When anti-matter lost to matter and earth was created it went through a a mathematically improbable or probable set of functions to arrive at you. It also did it for everything else in the universe though so don’t go around thinking your special. BUT it does seem these probable and improbable occurrences have afforded you what seems to be an incredibly beautiful life.
A waking examined life is devastatingly beautiful."

"The last thing that I found devastatingly beautiful was this snippet of code that runs most set top boxes. In about 45 lines, it does more than I have seen people do in a thousand. I find elegant solutions to be incredibly beautiful especially when it involves mathematical, technical, political (policies, specifically), etc. areas."

Koyaanisqatsi may be the most beautiful thing I have heard or seen. I don’t know if you are into “minimalist” composition, but I think Philip Glass is one of the greatest musical minds of the 20th century. The movie also has some of the best time lapse sequences out there. The whole film makes humans look like a infestation of destructive ants that reshape and drain the planet to their will.

it’s simple but I really like the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum and the courtyard in Copley library.
