Beauty Quotes Quotes

Ugliness is in a way superior to beauty because it lasts.

Serge Gainsbourg

Endurance is nobler than strength and patience than beauty.

John Ruskin

Beauty is variable, ugliness is constant.

Douglas Horton

Electricity is often called wonderful, beautiful; but it is so only in common with the other forces of nature. The beauty of electricity or of any other force is not that the power is mysterious, and unexpected, touching every sense at unawares in turn, but that it is under law, and that the taught intellect can even govern it largely. The human mind is placed above, and not beneath it, and it is in such a point of view that the mental education afforded by science is rendered super-eminent in dignity, in practical application and utility; for by enabling the mind to apply the natural power through law, it conveys the gifts of God to man.

Michael Faraday

A new generation of Christians is being called to help build a world in which God's gift of life is welcomed, respected and cherished-not rejected, feared as a threat and destroyed. A new age in which love is not greedy or self-seeking, but pure, faithful and genuinely free, open to others, respectful of their dignity, seeking their good, radiating joy and beauty - a new age in which hope liberates us from the shallowness, apathy and self-absorption that deaden our souls and poison our relationships.

Pope Benedict XVI

Beauty is but skin deep, ugly lies the bone; Beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own

Unknown

Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.

Parker, Dorothy

Ugliness is better than beauty. It lasts longer and in the end, gravity will get us all.

L.M. Montgomery

Ugliness is in a way superior to beauty because it lasts.

Dodie Smith

O, thou art fairer than the evening air clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.

Christopher Marlowe

The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper

Aristotle

The human mind is capable of excitement without the application of gross and violent stimulants; and he must have a very faint perception of its beauty and dignity who does not know this.

William Wordsworth

Beauty is all about us, but how may are blind! They look at the wonder of this earth and seem to see nothing. People move hectically but give little thought to where they are going. They seek excitement ... as if they were lost and desperate.

Pablo Casals

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

An instant's visitor the godhead shone. On life's thin border awhile the Vision stood And bent over earth's pondering forehead curve. Interpreting a recondite beauty and bliss In colour's hieroglyphs of mystic sense, It wrote the lines of a significant myth Telling of a greatness of spiritual dawns, A brilliant code penned with the sky for page.

Sri Aurobindo

I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.

Titus Maccius Plautus

“Beauty is all about us, but how may are blind! They look at the wonder of this earth and seem to see nothing. People move hectically but give little thought to where they are going. They seek excitement ... as if they were lost and desperate.”
