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.  ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross~


For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.  ~Ivan Panin~


As we grow old, the beauty steals inward.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~


We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.  ~Jawaharlal Nehru~

  3. _butt Says:

    I liked Ralph Waldo Emerson’s definition the most. but to me, well, since beauty is always an abstract subject to discuss I would say generally the earth that we lived in is the beauty itself 🙂

    cheers. happy weekend Jemima

    That’s true, _butt.

    Enjoy your weekend, my friend. 🙂

    “The first daughter he named Jemimah, …. nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers… *wink*

    I know, Trinity. 😉

    Btw, if you have a new-born baby girl, would you ever name her Jemimah? 😛

  6. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.
    Helen Keller

    Another very popular quote that I love about beauty. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, Giddy Tigress.

    Everyone has their own definition for beauty. People think that it’s shallow if you fall in love w/beauty but it’s the otherwise for myself b/c I believe that we are creatures w/visions for beauty. Hence we are always attracted to beautiful people and items. I’m not naive but that’s from my own observation. But of course I’m not comparing external and internal beauty b/c it’s just a general term of how beauty can be defined by each person.


    Well said, my friend. 🙂

    As for me, I believe the best beauty is from within.

    Beauty, right now, is my iPhone!! But beauty comes and goes, unfortunately.. What may be beauty one day may turn out horrible another.. *looking at the divorce rates shooting thru the roof*

    I guess beauty and cynical does not go together!! But there is beauty, and then there is Beauty.. Some will remain, no matter what, come what may.

    Hmmm.. so, nothing lasts forever.. not even beauty.
    What about love, LB?
    Despite the high divorce rates, I believe some love is eternal, regardless of the faded physical beauty ‘cos the internal one remains. 😉

  9. moz Says:

    Beauty is simply in the eyes of the beholder.

    I no longer argue that it’s internal or external. I believe nowadays its all in the complete package – it’s got to be everything in that person. One nice body part or a good overall look, those means nothing to me.

    Hear! Hear! Long Live Moz! 😀

    Thanks for dropping by. 😉
