Words of Beauty

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

In today's world of glamorized 'perfect' women who are altered, tweaked, and made just so, we sometimes have to ask: What does beauty mean to us? Who is beautiful?

After talking it over we feel that beauty is: First it is love in action.
For example it is in the sacrifices of our parents, our grandparents, our siblings, our priests, our friends, our loved ones.

"Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul." St Augustine

Second: A beautiful woman, man, child, is one who knows she/he is loved by God and so is one that loves in return. 

We searched and found a few wise words on the subject of beauty. Happy reading and share with us if you any thoughts/quotes! We love to hear from you.

"There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful than a woman being unapologetically herself ; comfortable in her physical imperfection. To me that is the essence of beauty. " Dr.Steve Maraboli

"A beauty is a woman you notice, a charmer is one who notices you." Adali E. Stevenson

"Beauty is not caused. It is." Emily Dickinson

"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years." Audrey Hepburn

"Beauty is not in the face, beauty is a  light in the heart." Kahil Gibran

"Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty-they merely move it from their faces into their hearts." Martin Bauxbaum

"If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely." Roald Dahl

and one just to give us all a bit of inspiration:

"If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I bet they'd live alot differently." Calvin and Hobbes
