--> ďIt is the glory of Bostonís hillside roofs and western windows aflame with sunset; of the flower-fragrant Common and the great dome on the hill and the tangle of gables and chimneys in the violet valley where the many-bridged Charles flows drowsily... There is Providence, quaint and lordly on its seven hills over the blue harbour, with terraces of green leading up to steeples and citadels of living antiquity, and Newport climbing wraith-like from its dreaming breakwater...Cool vales in Concord, cobbled lanes in Portsmouth, twilight bends of rustic New-Hampshire roads where giant elms half hide white farmhouse walls and creaking well-sweeps. Gloucesterís salt wharves and Truroís windy willows. Vistas of distant steepled towns and hills beyond hills along the North Shore, hushed stony slopes and low ivied cottages in the lee of huge boulders in Rhode-Islandís back country. Scent of the sea and fragrance of the fields; spell of the dark woods and joy of the orchards and gardens at dawn.

** At the end, [[spoiler:''Nyarlathotep'' out of all people]] delivers one, telling Carter that the beautiful city of his dreams [[spoiler: that even the Gods of Kadath abandoned for was nothing more than his home city of Boston and his memories of New England]] in what may be one of the most beautiful passages in Lovecraft's works.

* A couple in The Shadow out of Time. Firstly, there's mention of the protagonist encountering the mind of a human in a Yith body who is from the 2500s, meaning that despite the CrapsackWorld Lovecraft built in his work, humanity survives, in some form, up to that time. Secondly, there's the fact that the Yithians are rather welcoming of those who they have stolen the bodies of. They're cared for until the five-year period ends, get to interact with others in the same situation, and over time, the protagonist comes to find the world he's been shunted into as not terrifying, but beautiful.

* In "The Shunned House," the protagonist and his uncle, Elihu Whipple, explore an abandoned house linked to a series of mysterious deaths over time. A yellow fungus transforms Whipple into a rotting monster which takes on, in rapid succession, the forms of all the house's former inhabitants. Just before it dissolves completely, however, the monster appears to struggle with itself and then assumes Whipple's kindly appearance one last time. "I like to think," says the protagonist, "that [[DyingAsYourself he existed at that moment]], and that he tried to bid me farewell."
* In ''Literature/AtTheMountainsOfMadness'', geologist Wayne Dyer, though initially spooked upon discovering the remnants of the extraterrestrial Old Ones' Antarctic civilization, concludes that--uniquely in a Lovecraft work--their alien nature did not mean they were evil [[note]]that designation belonging instead to their creations the shoggoths, which became corrupt and destroyed them[[/note]]:
--> After all, they were not evil things of their kind. They were the men of another age and another order of being [...] They had not been even savages--for what indeed had they done? [...] God, what intelligence and persistence! What a facing of the incredible, just as those carven kinsmen and forbears had faced things only a little less incredible! Radiates, vegetables, monstrosities, star spawn ó whatever they had been, [[NotSoDifferent they were men]]!
