When we hear the word 'beauty', we inevitably think that beauty belongs in a special elite realm where only the extraordinary dwells. Yet without realizing it, each day each one of us is visited by beauty. When you actually listen to people, it is surprising how often beauty is mentioned. A world without beauty would be unbearable.
I think that something needs to be weird in order to have a real beauty.
I never quite understood why Disney hadn't made a sincere fairy tale since 'Beauty and the Beast.'
Oh, I had, 'No one will ever fancy me!' I had that well into my teens. Even now I do not consider myself to be some kind of great, sexy beauty. I don't mind the way I'm ageing. No reason to panic just yet. I think I look my age, and that's fine.
The 1990s, after the reign of terror of academic vandalism, will be a decade of restoration: restoration of meaning, value, beauty, pleasure, and emotion to art and restoration of art to its audience.
Everything in nature has its own intrinsic charm, as the work of its Creator's hand; but the chief beauty of the whole lies in its suggested relations to humanity. Things announce and wait for persons. The house would not have been thus beautifully built and furnished, except for an expected tenant.
I feel prematurely old. I'm actually having this major belated quarter-life crisis. I'm turning 30 in a couple of weeks. I've been thinking a lot about mortality. A lot about what I'm going to do with my life and how to enjoy it. One of the things I'm going to work on is being more spontaneous, letting go, embracing the beauty of come-what-may.
No single man can be taken as a model for a perfect figure, for no man lives on earth who is endowed with the whole of beauty.
I see the beauty in boxing. It teaches me strength physically, but mostly mentally. I had to learn my strength, because for so long I could have been tougher than I was.
Beauty is not just physical.
Art ought never to be considered except in its relations with its ideal beauty.
Alfred de Vigny
Fear of carbs, of gluten, of everything - we've distanced ourselves from the beauty of food, the art of it. It makes me sad when people say, 'Oh, I don't eat gluten. I don't eat cheese. I don't eat this. So I eat cardboard.'
Swift speedy time, feathered with flying hours, Dissolves the beauty of the fairest brow.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
A sculptor wields The chisel, and the stricken marble grows To beauty.
William C. Bryant
Black beauty - he's a dark horse.
Beauty fades! I just turned 29, so I probably don't have that many good years left in me.
I'm only wanted by directors for the image I give off, and it makes me angry. I always wanted to be an actor and not a beauty pageant winner.
The ideal has many names, and beauty is but one of them.
Ninon de L'Enclos
When I was a freshman in high school, I read a book about the making of Disney's 'Sleeping Beauty' called 'The Art of Animation.' It was this weird revelation for me, because I hadn't considered that people actually get paid to make cartoons.
I didn't have any confidence in my beauty when I was young. I felt like a character actress, and I still do.
The thought came to me that all one loves in art becomes beautiful. Beauty is nothing but the expression of the fact that something is being loved. Only thus could she be defined.
Women are so unforgiving of themselves. We don't recognize our own beauty because we're too busy comparing ourselves to other people.
A lot of people have no access to beauty. When I was growing up, my mother had only a few pretty things to look at.
It took a long while for me to know that I'm beautiful. I remember going through this phase when I was younger of wanting to pass by mirrors and not look at them. That was so ridiculous. I've learned now that beauty starts from within.
I recognize in thieves, traitors and murderers, in the ruthless and the cunning, a deep beauty - a sunken beauty.
John F. Kennedy
