Beauty

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

William Goldman


«I fell in love with a beautiful girl, got her pregnant, and then I got married. I wonder whatever happened to that beautiful girl I got pregnant.»

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


«I am a fashion person, and fashion is not only about clothes -- it's about all kinds of change»

Karl Lagerfeld


«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


«If they hadn't told me I was ugly, I never would have searched for my beauty. And if they hadn't tried to break me down, I wouldn't know that I'm unbreakable.»

Gabourney Sidibe


«I see again my schoolroom in Vyra, the blue roses of the wallpaper, the open window.… Everything is as it should be, nothing will ever change, nobody will ever die.»

Vladimir Nabokov


«Things are beautiful when they're allowed to be free.»

Marty Rubin


«A flower's structure leads a bee toward having pollen adhere to its body . . . we don't know of any such reason why beautiful places attract humans.»

David Rains Wallace


«There is nothing more attractive than a great positive personality. Its beauty never fades away with time.»

Edmond Mbiaka


«Despite all the dark armor, the kohl liner, the black boots and chains, she saw him clearly now. She’d peered through the curtain of that cruel»

Kelly Creagh


«A lovely girl gazing at the stars, and the stars who gazed back.»

Sarah J. Maas


«In life there will be pain, suffering, ugliness, but let us be grateful for the beauty, blessing, and miracle of life.»

Debasish Mridha


«I hate slick and pretty things. I prefer mistakes and accidents. Which is why I like things like cuts and bruises - they're like little flowers. I've always said that if you have a name for something, like 'cut' or 'bruise,' people will automatically be disturbed by it. But when you see the same thing in nature, and you don't know what it is, it can be very beautiful.»

David Lynch


«Oh, Mr. Cuthbert," she whispered, that place we came through--that white place--what was it?"»

L.M. Montgomery


«I had zero idea of what I was doing.. I honestly had no idea where to start. All I knew was I had something I craved to say.. I wanted to create art that lived on longer than I do. Perseverance and teaching yourself, every day through stress and hard work proves shit really does progress without you realizing. One minute you're an amateur, knowing nothing, not even the basics. The next you can put pen to paper, write a song, and create art in such little time! It's crazy beautiful.»

scott mcgoldrick


«All beauty, according to Lady Katchatka, had its origins in pain.»

Jon Courtenay Grimwood


«Your life is meant to be filled with beauty.»

Bryant McGill


«Her problem is with pretty,” Tennyson said. "She thinks I’ll need all these dresses in college. Like I would ever in a billion years pledge a sorority. I’ll pack a few of these to be ironic, though. I can wear them to, like, truck stops at night with mascara running down my cheeks and stuff.»

Laura Anderson Kurk


«There is beauty in what is broken.»

K.K. Hendin


«Never before had I known the sudden quiver of understanding that travels from word to brain to heart, the way a new language can move, coil, swim into life under the eyes, the almost savage leap of comprehension, the instantaneous, joyful release of meaning, the way the words shed their printed bodies in a flash of heat and light.»

Elizabeth Kostova


«Mental illness is not a fraternity or a social club for like minds. It is its own religion to each person that has it. Their mind is their pastor, their feelings are their scriptures and their delusions are their own bible story. To break them free, is to break their faith in signs. That is why so many feel lost.»

Shannon L. Alder


«the sun had tanned her so that the rich velvety blackness of her skin glistened and she felt so much herself on those days of Carnival, soaked so deeply with a sense of her own beauty, that after the festival, she continued to keep her hair in the same fashion and wear her skin with the same pride, the result being that men took her for a foreign woman»

Earl Lovelace


«Beauty! Terrible Beauty!»

Homer
