The essence of all beauty, I call love,
  The attribute, the evidence, and end,
    The consummation to the inward sense
      Of beauty apprehended from without,
        I still call love.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sword Glare

The mate for beauty should be a man and not a money chest.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Those critics who, in modern times, have the most thoughtfully analyzed the laws of aesthetic beauty, concur in maintain that the real truthfulness of all works of imagination--sculpture, painting, written fiction--is so purely in the imagination, that the artist never seeks to represent the positive truth, but the idealized image of a truth.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

And behold there was a very stately palace before him, the name of which was Beautiful.
      - John Bunyan, Pilgrim's Progress (pt. I)

An appearance of delicacy, and even of fragility, is almost essential to beauty.

As amber attracts a straw, so does beauty admiration, which only lasts while the warmth continues.
      - Robert Burton

A lovely girl is above all rank.
      - Charles Buxton

Around her shone
  The nameless charms unmark'd by her alone.
    The light of love, the purity of grace,
      The mind, the music breathing from her face,
        The heart whose softness harmonized the whole,
          And, oh! that eye was in itself a soul.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Her overpowering presence made you feel
  It would not be idolatry to kneel.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Methinks a being that is beautiful becometh more so as it looks on beauty, the eternal beauty of undying things.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The light of love, the purity of grace,
  The mind, the Music breathing from her face,
    The heart whose softness harmonized the whole,
      And, oh! the eye was in itself a Soul!
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Bride of Abydos (canto I, st. 6)

Who doth not feel, until his failing sight
  Faints into dimness with its own delight,
    His changing cheek, his sinking heart confess,
      The might--the majesty of Loveliness?
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Bride of Abydos (canto I, st. 6)

Thou who hast
  The fatal gist of beauty.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto IV, st. 42)

Her glossy hair was cluster'd o'er a brow
  Bright with intelligence, and fair and smooth;
    Her eyebrow's shape was like the aerial bow,
      Her cheek all purple with the beam of youth,
        Mounting, at times, to a transparent glow,
          As if her veins ran lightning.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto I, st. 61)

A lovely being, scarcely formed or moulded,
  A rose with all its sweetest leaves yet folded.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto XV, st. 43)

She walks in beauty like the night
  Of cloudless chimes and starry skies;
    And all that's best of dark and bright
      Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
        Thus mellowed to that tender light
          Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        She Walks in Beauty

The dower of great beauty has always been misfortune, since happiness and beauty do not agree together.
      - Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Beauty is a beam from heaven that dazzles blind our reason.

Beauty's tears are lovelier than her smiles.

Without the smile from partial beauty won,
  O, what were man! a world without a sun!
      - Thomas Campbell

Every year of my life I grow more convinced that it is wisest and best to fix our attention on the beautiful and good and dwell as little as possible on the dark and the base.
      - Lord David Cecil (Edward Christian David Cecil)

All beauty does not inspire love. Some please the sight without captivating the affections.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

Beauty in a modest woman is like fire at a distance, or like a sharp sword; neither doth the one burn, nor the other wound those that come not too near them.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)
