Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.
Markus Zusak, I am the Messenger
“Beauty is the illumination of your soul.”
“Outer beauty attracts, but inner beauty captivates.”
“It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.”
Leo Tolstoy, The Kreutzer Sonata
“Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.”
“Judge nothing by the appearance. The more beautiful the serpent, the more fatal its sting.”
William Scott Downey, Proverbs
“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
“Do all the good you can and create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside. It is inner beauty which matters most.”
Dr. Anil Kumar Sinha
“Above all things physical, it is more important to be beautiful on the inside – to have a big heart and an open mind and a spectacular spleen.”
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”
Miss Piggy, The Muppets
“Natural beauty takes at least two hours in front of a mirror.”
“Beauty can be consoling, disturbing, sacred, profane; it can be exhilarating, appealing, inspiring, chilling. It can affect us in an unlimited variety of ways. Yet it is never viewed with indifference: beauty demands to be noticed; it speaks to us directly like the voice of an intimate friend. If there are people who are indifferent to beauty, then it is surely because they do not perceive it.”
Roger Scruton, Beauty
