Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.
People often say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder,' and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.
Beauty awakens the soul to act.
The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully have been kindness, beauty, and truth.
Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I want all my senses engaged. Let me absorb the world's variety and uniqueness.
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
Henry David Thoreau
Just because you are blind, and unable to see my beauty doesn't mean it does not exist.
Order is the shape upon which beauty depends.
I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may – light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful.
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
I finally realized that being grateful to my body was key to giving more love to myself.
