“The misconception with a lot of girls is that it takes two to three hours to be beautiful.  I always tell girls allow yourself thirty minutes so that you can really enjoy the process, so that you can get to know you in the morning before the world gets to know you.” ~ Tracy Balan

“We are all born sexual creatures, thank God.  But it’s a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift.” ~ Marilyn Monroe

“No beauty is lost.  You get to see the real face of it after the blossoms have fallen off the tree.  That’s why I would rather see the face of a beautiful woman than a pretty girl.  Girls aren’t beautiful, they’re pretty.  Beautiful is too heavy a word to assign to a girl.  Women are beautiful because their faces show that they know, they have lost something and picked up something else.” ~ Henry Rollins

“For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and it amazes us so, because it serenely disdains to destroy us.  Every angel is terrible.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

“Taught from their infancy that beauty is woman’s sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison.” ~ Mary Wollstonecraft

“Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.” ~ Albert Camus

“Beauty intoxicates the eyes, as wine does the body; both are morally fatal if indulged.” ~ John Godfrey Saxe

“It’s all mirror, mirror on the wall, because beauty is power the same way money is power the same way a gun is power.” ~ Chuck Palahniuk
“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you will never walk alone...”
~ Sam Levenson

“When you start to really know someone, all his physical characteristics start to disappear.  You begin to dwell in his energy, recognize the scent of his skin.  You see only the essence of the person, not the shell.  That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty.  You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it.  You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart.  And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.” ~ Lisa Unger

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“You were given life.  It is your duty
and also your entitlement as a human beingto find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed.  And you are beautiful.” ~ Amy Bloom

“It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.” ~ Leo Tolstoy

“Beauty unites all things, links together flower and star, with chains more certain than those of reason.  The poet, the artist, thus finds the clue which guides them in their pilgrimage throughout the world.” ~ Henry James Slack
