True, when you behold Damascus from the Salahiyeh, the last slope of the Anti-Lebanon, it is the realization of all that you have dreamed of Oriental splendor; the world has no picture more dazzling. It is Beauty carried to the Sublime, as I have felt when overlooking some boundless forest of palms within the tropics.
I have a book out called 'The Beauty Equation' and it discusses how off track we have gone in considering beauty.
Beauty lasts five minutes. Maybe longer if you have a good plastic surgeon.
Such discussions help us very little to enjoy what has been well done in art or poetry, to discriminate between what is more and what is less excellent in them, or to use words like beauty, excellence, art, poetry, with a more precise meaning than they would otherwise have.
Part of the beauty of fiction is that we come alive in a body that we don't own.
One must learn, if one is to see the beauty in Japan, to like an extraordinarily restrained and delicate loveliness.
Mary Ritter Beard
Italy's assets are her style, her beauty, her creativity, her passion, her energy, her technology; and these will be core brand values of all our cars. Fiat as a company has a long way to go and a steep road ahead.
I'm flatchested, I'm short, I'm brunette, I have droopy eyes, and so people have a hard time casting me as a 'beauty.'
Beauty doesn't matter because in the end, we all lose our looks and all we have is our heart.
Being proud of who we are as people is more important than cutting into ourselves to create this false idea of beauty.
We create our own government. We are responsible for its beauty and for its ugliness. We are responsible for its glories and for its failures and, most important, we are responsible for amending those failures no matter who are their most immediate architects.
The game in beauty is changing so much, if your product isn't high tech or can't make a unique performance claim - plump your lips, reduce your lines, look glossy, and stay on for 24 hours - you can't go to market today. I'm not just talking about a $20 lipstick, but a $5 lipstick!

I needed to be in the bush. There I find solitude and beauty and purity and focus. That's where my heart lies.
