Whatever is beautiful is also profitable.

Elysian beauty, melancholy grace,
  Brought from a pensive, though a happy place.

Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair,
  Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair,
    But all things else about her drawn
      From May-time and the cheerful Dawn.
      - William Wordsworth,
        She Was a Phantom of Delight

And beauty born of murmuring sound.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Three Years She Grew in Sun and Shower

True beauty dwells in deep retreats,
  Whose veil is unremoved
    Till heart with heart in concord beats,
      And the lover is beloved.
      - William Wordsworth,
        To-------Let Other Bards of Angels Sing

Alas! how little can a moment show
  Of an eye where feeling plays
    In ten thousand dewy rays;
      A face o'er which a thousand shadows go!
      - William Wordsworth, Triad

Beauty is truth, truth beauty--that is all
  Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
      - William Butler Yeats

'Tis the eternal law,
  That first in beauty should be first in might.
      - William Butler Yeats

Beautiful as sweet! and young as beautiful! and soft as young! and gay as soft! and innocent as gay!
      - Edward Young

The body charms because the soul is seen.
      - Edward Young

What's true beauty but fair virtue's face,--virtue made visible in outward grace.
      - Edward Young

What's female beauty, but an air divine,
  Through which the mind's all-gentle graces shine!
    They, like the Sun, irradiate all between;
      The body charms, because the soul is seen.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire VI, l. 151)

Beauty is worse than wine; it intoxicates both the holder and the beholder.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
