«Here, also, the future was cried aloud by the wind through the rocks, so that all those who heard would shiver, and then the liquid spring song of the thrush would make all the beauty of moonlight and sunlight blend together, making it true, so true, that happiness must come again»

Elyne Mitchell


«When I see you, my darling, in the morning before showers or in your studio covered with paint with your hair matted and tired eyes, I know that you are the most beautiful woman in the world.»

Nicholas Sparks


«Live and love with your soul's goodness and inner beauty as your heart leaps upward in any season of your life.»

Angelica Hopes


«You're the mad one,' I said. 'If you could see yourself, hear your own voice, your music - which of course you play for yourself - you wouldn't see darkness, Nicki. You'd see an illumination that is all your own. Sombre, yes, but light and beauty come together in you in a thousand different patterns.»

Anne Rice


«Love is the only bow on Life’s dark cloud. It is the morning and the evening star. It shines upon the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb. It is the mother of art, inspirer of poet, patriot and philosopher.»

Robert G. Ingersoll


«She will outstrip all praise and make it halt behind her.»

William Shakespeare


«Isn't this a nice time of night to walk? I like to smell things and look at things, and sometimes stay up all night, walking, and watch the sun rise.»

«Let beauty be your end. Why should you mint beauty into gold? Anyway, you can’t;»

Jack London


«Once who is beautiful at the age of five, will also be beautiful at the age of 25 and 75. Its only the attraction that fades out with time, charm and beauty always remain there.»

Megh Bhatnagar


«The acute experience of great beauty readily evokes a nameless yearning for something more than earth can offer. Elegant splendor reawakens our spirit’s aching need for the infinite, a hunger for more than matter can provide.»

Thomas Dubay


«Age doesn’t protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.»

«Just because you're beautiful and perfect, it's made you conceited.»

William Goldman

Jarod Kintz


«Have all beautiful things sad destinies?»

Jean Rhys


«i think through it all, the hardest part was un-attaching myself to the ones I thought would stay around forever. People change and life changes with it, you've got to fight like mad for everything you love and let go with ease for everything that isn't fitting for you anymore. It is apart of maturing your soul, you attract what you need for that stage of your life, and you grow, as people change and so does life.»

Nikki Rowe


«Even men of the noblest possible moral character are extremely susceptible to the influence of the physical charms of others. Modern, no less then Ancient History, supplies us with many most painful examples of what I refer to. If it were not so, indeed, History would be quite unreadable.»

Oscar Wilde


«Don’t be so focused on the past or future situations that you overlook the beauty of the present moment that is NOW.»

Kasi Kaye Iliopoulos


«But beauty was not everything. Beauty had this penalty - it came too readily, came too completely. It stilled life - froze it. One forgot the little agitations; the flush, the pallor, some queer distortion, some light or shadow, which made the face unrecognisable for a moment and yet added quality one saw for ever after. It was simpler to smooth that all out under the cover of beauty.»

Virginia Woolf


«I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.»

W. Somerset Maugham


«Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.»

Edgar Allan Poe


«Only God may be adored, because only God is unlimited goodness, truth, and beauty, and thus only God deserves unlimited love.»

Peter Kreeft
