The beautiful is never plentiful.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The beautiful rests on the foundations of the necessary.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essay--On the Poet

Who gave thee, O Beauty,
  The keys of this breast,--
    Too credulous lover
      Of blest and unblest?
        Say, when in lapsed ages
          Thee knew I of old?
            Or what was the service
              For which I was sold?
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Ode to Beauty (st. 1)

Rhodora! if the sages ask thee why
  This charm is wasted on the marsh and sky,
    Tell them, dear, that if eyes were made for seeing,
      Then beauty is its own excuse for being.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Rhodora

Love that has nothing but beauty to keep it in good health is short-lived, and apt to have ague fits.
      - Desiderius Gerhard Erasmus

Each ornament about her seemly lies,
  By curious chance, or careless art composed.
      - Edward Fairfax, Godfrey of Bullogne

For converse among men, beautiful persons have less need of the mind's commending qualities. Beauty in itself is such a silent orator, that it is ever pleading for respect and liking, and by the eyes of others is ever sending, to their hearts for love.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

Yet even this hath this inconvenience in it--that it makes its possessor neglect the furnishing of the mind with nobleness. Nay, it oftentimes is a cause that the mind is ill.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

Any color, so long as it's red,
  Is the color that suits me best,
    Though I will allow there is much to be said
      For yellow and green and the rest.
      - Eugene Field, Red

In the forming of female friendships beauty seldom recommends one woman to another.
      - Henry Fielding

Handsome is that handsome does.
      - Henry Fielding, Tom Jones
         (bk. IV, ch. XII),
        also see George Granville

A beautiful woman is the hell of the soul, the purgatory of the purse, and the paradise of the eyes.
      - Bernard de Bovier de Fontenelle

It is beauty that begins to please, and tenderness that completes the cbarm.
      - Bernard de Bovier de Fontenelle

I don't think of all the misery, but of all the beauty that still remains.
      - Anne Frank

Beauty, without virtue, is like a flower without perfume.
      - French Quotations

I'd rather be hit by a gorgeous man than an ugly one.
      - Zsa Zsa Gabor

In beauty, faults conspicuous grow;
  The smallest speck is seen on snow.
      - John Gay,
        Fable--The Peacock, Turkey and Goose
         (l. 1)

Beauty is an outward gift which is seldom despised, except by those to whom it has been refused.
      - Edward Gibbon

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
      - Kahlil Gibran

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
      - Kahlil Gibran

Keep your faith in all beautiful things; in the sun when it is hidden, in the Spring when it is gone.
      - Roy Rolfe Gilson

The sense of beauty enters into the highest philosophy, as in Plato. The highest poet must be a philosopher, accomplished like Dante, or intuitive like Shakespeare.
      - Rt. Hon. William Ewart Gladstone

After fifteen minutes nobody looks at a rainbow.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Beauty is at once the ultimate principle and the highest aim of art.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
