Beauty

«The beauty of obedience is that what God expects you to do, He also enables you to do.»

Jim George


«Do you know, Watson," said he, "that it is one of the curses of a mind with a turn like mine that I must look at everything with reference to my own special subject. You look at these scattered houses, and you are impressed by their beauty. I look at them, and the only thought which comes to me is a feeling of their isolation and of the impunity with which crime may be committed there.»

Arthur Conan Doyle


«I could not see beauty until I held hands with chaos in silence.»

Vironika Tugaleva


«...so individuals have their flesh cut and pulled, surgery companies proclaim it as an empowering choice, and the stifling cultural ideals about women's appearance are left unscathed»

Kat Banyard


«We cannot approach beauty. Its nature is like opaline doves'-neck lustres, hovering and evanescent. Herein it resembles the most excellent things, which all have this rainbow character, defying all attempts at appropriation and use.»

Ralph Waldo Emerson


«There is so much beauty in different women – thin, big, normal, tall, short, medium, long hair, short hair, etc. Only narrow-mindedness can define it all in one woman.»

Gloria D. Gonsalves


«If she could no longer be called beautiful, she possessed something better-a knowledge of beauty; it’s inflated value, it’s inevitable loss.»

Hilary Thayer Hamann


«Just the word beautiful was seductive - but what did it really mean? Beauty was a soft word that ached with possibility, pliant as dough. You could not presume to define it, she realized, because the very idea of beauty and all it represented was a subjective thing - in the eye of the beholder - but that wasn't really true anymore.»

Elizabeth Brundage


«J'ai quelque fois rêvé que de temps en temps des heures se détachaient de la vie des anges et venaient ici-bas traverser la destinée des hommes.»

Victor Hugo


«To live in a culture in which women are routinely naked where men aren't is to learn inequality in little ways all day long. So even if we agree that sexual imagery is in fact a language, it is clearly one that is already heavily edited to protect men's sexual--and hence social--confidence while undermining that of women.»

Naomi Wolf


«Always think of what is useful and not what is beautiful. Beauty will come of its own accord.»

Nikolai Gogol


«The better you look, the more you see.»

Bret Easton Ellis

Kirk Diedrich


«Wow Kelsey!" Kishan whistled. "I'm going to have to beat the other guys of with a stick!»

Colleen Houck


«Timer - timer i fjeldene. I mørke kan hænde, i uveir og kamp -»

Peter Wessel Zapffe


«When I had the dividing reason, I shrank from many things; after I had lost it in sight, I hunted through the world for the ugly and the repellant, but I could no longer find them.»

Sri Aurobindo


«Beauty is beautiful. That’s the beauty of beauty.»

Jarod Kintz


«You are worthy of good things, and you are a deserving and beautiful person.»

Bryant McGill


«She was every inch the skeletal goddess that had been promised by the bones of her feet.»

Jefferson Smith


«The sight of such aching beauty would infuse his soul with pain.»

Tabitha Suzuma


«It's all mirror, mirror on the wall because beauty is power the same way money is power the same way a gun is power.»

Chuck Palahniuk


«Pues eso es la belleza: una situación, no un estado.»

Michel Schneider


«Confidence don't mean jack shit in the real world, sis," she once said. I feel myself finding the courage to trust those words more and more with every twist of the knife. Coincidentally, last Tuesday afternoon I was involuntarily exposed to the punch line of an old wise tale that goes something like: "There's beauty that can be found in everything." But why can't the insensitive cunt who said that ever find the courage to look in the mirror? Because poopycock, one might say.»

Dave Matthes


«Let us live for the beauty of our own reality.»

Tom Robbins


«Wicca offered real, not pretended, means for the individual to express the art, beauty, and reality of ritual, including magic, in the here and now. --Paul Turnbull»

Arin Murphy-Hiscock


«Your erotic,»

L.V. HALL


«Beauty always made a target of its possessor. Every other human quality was hidden easily enough – intelligence, talent, selfishness, even madness – but beauty would not be concealed.»

Tommy Wallach


«He looked like a fallen angel, replete with all the dangerous male beauty that Lucifer could devise.»

Lisa Kleypas


«He was the most beautiful boy I had ever seen in my life. But he really looked like a girl. She was the most beautiful boy I’d ever seen in my life.»

Ali Smith


«There is so much beauty in the world, but you must allow yourself to see it.»

Tom Giaquinto
