'Tis hard with respect to Beauty, that its possessor should not have a life enjoyment of it, but be compelled to resign it after, at the most, some forty years' lease
William Makepeace Thackeray
A beauty is a woman you notice; a charmer is one who notices you.
Adlai E. Stevenson
A man who as a physical being is always turned toward the outside, thinking that his happiness lies outside him, finally turns inward and discovers that the source is within him.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever; its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness
John Keats
All heiresses are beautiful
John Dryden
As we grow old, the beauty steals inward.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Beauty and folly are old companions.
Benjamin Franklin
Beauty attracts us men; but if, like an armed magnet it is pointed, beside, with gold and silver, it attracts with tenfold power.
Jean Paul Richter
Beauty depends on size as well as symmetry. No very small animal can be beautiful, for looking at it takes so small a portion of time that the impression of it will be confused. Nor can any very large one, for a whole view of it cannot be had at once
Aristotle
Beauty deprived of its proper foils and adjuncts ceases to be enjoyed as beauty, just as light deprived of all shadows ceases to be enjoyed as light.
John Ruskin
Beauty has often overpowered the resolutions of the firm, and the reasonings of the wise, roused the old to sensibility, and subdued the rigorous to softness
Samuel Johnson
Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.
David Hume
Beauty is a form of genius - is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon.
Oscar Wilde
Beauty is a manifestation of secret natural laws, which otherwise would have been hidden from us forever.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance, but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Beauty is a short-lived tyranny.
Socrates
Beauty is all very well at first sight; but who looks at it when it has been in the house three days?
George Bernard Shaw
Beauty is all very well at first sight; but whoever looks at it when it has been in the house three days ?
George Bernard Shaw
Beauty is an outward gift which is seldom despised, except by those to whom it has been refused
Edward Gibbon
Beauty is desired in order that it may be befouled; not for its own sake, but for the joy brought by the certainty of profaning it.
Tom Stoppard
