"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting"
"Beauty is our weapon against nature; by it we make objects, giving them limit, symmetry, proportion. Beauty halts and freezes the melting flux of nature"
"Beauty is only temporary, but your mind lasts you a lifetime"
"Beauty and folly are old companions"
"Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person"
"I don't need plastic in my body to validate me as a woman"
"God gave me a great body and it's my duty to take care of my physical temple"
"Beauty is the first present nature gives to women and the first it takes away"
"The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives"
"Beauty is everywhere a welcome guest"
"Beauty is a manifestation of secret natural laws, which otherwise would have been hidden from us forever"
"Beauty is worse than wine, it intoxicates both the holder and beholder"
"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"
"Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror"
"Like charity, I believe glamour should begin at home"
"Having inner beauty is something you develop on your own, and I like to think I have that"
"Beauty is the sole ambition, the exclusive goal of Taste"
"There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through, something unexplainable, that's beautiful to me"
"My dad had this philosophy that if you tell children they're beautiful and wonderful then they believe it, and they will be. So I never thought I was unattractive. But I was never one of the girls at school who had lots of boyfriends"
"I can't live without my beauty products. I love to be in my bathroom with my candles lit, morning, noon and night. I like taking hot baths and hot showers, using my body scrubs and lotions"
"I define nothing. Not beauty, not patriotism. I take each thing as it is, without prior rules about what it should be"
"There is hope and a kind of beauty in there somewhere, if you look for it"
"'Handsome' means many things to many people. If people consider me handsome, I feel flattered - and have my parents to thank for it. Realistically, it doesn't hurt to be good-looking, especially in this business"
"The problem with beauty is that it's like being born rich and getting poorer"
"I don't think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains"
