What is Beauty?

Beauty is different things to different people. To know this all you have to do is look at the images on your computer labeled beauty. To some it is beauty of face and body, to others it is what's inside that makes a person beautiful. There are some who equate beauty with nature - an animal, a body of water, or a breathtaking landscape. No matter who you are there is always something that you consider beautiful.

Susan Hazelton (author) from Sunny Florida on February 08, 2011:

ahostagesituation, I'm glad I could help. I think the beauty saying you got from your old friend is terrific. Sorry things went the way they did.

Fay Paxton on February 08, 2011:

I stopped and thought about many of these magnificent quotes, but this one is special...

"Judge not your beauty by the number of people who look at you, but rather by the number of people who smile at you."

dsmythe on February 08, 2011:

Lots of good ones here! My favorite quote of all time is "Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand."

- Leo Durocher

On that note...Go PADRES!!

SJ on February 07, 2011:

Awesome material! I was looking for something on "beauty" to use in a frustrating project I'm working on. Lots of what you used I haven't heard, and I'm kinda surprised at some of the authors you listed. Kafka? Who knew...sweet.

One of my favorites on beauty came from a guy I was with, went like this:

"There's an Italian painter, named Carlotti who defined beauty. He said it was the summation of the parts working together in such a way that nothing needed to be added, taken away or altered."

At the time I thought it was the sweetest thing I'd ever heard. Of course, now that same guy hates my guts--ending things and all. Pretty sure he wants backsies on this one ;->. Oh well, I was really unhappy.

This had to have taken a lot of time! Great hub!

It's a great quote, Nellie, and so true. Beauty can capture the eye but you have to have substance to go with it for your heart to become truly involved.

Susan Hazelton (author) from Sunny Florida on February 05, 2011:
