The average man is more interested in a woman who is interested in him than he is in a woman with beautiful legs.
      - Marlene Dietrich

Beauty and health are the chief sources of happiness.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Beauty can inspire miracles.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

The ladies of St. James's!
  They're painted to the eyes;
    Their white is stays for ever,
      Their red it never dies;
        But Phyllida, my Phillida!
          Her colour comes and goes;
            It trembles to a lily,--
              It wavers to a rose.
      - Henry Austin Dobson,
        At the Sign of the Lyre

Man has still more desire for beauty than knowledge of it; hence the caprices of the world.
      - Xavier Doudan

I contend that every woman has the right to feel beautiful, no matter how scrambled her features, or how indifferent her features.
      - Marie Dressler

All heiresses are beautiful.
      - John Dryden

Beauty is nothing else but a just accord and mutual harmony of the members, animated by a healthful constitution.
      - John Dryden

Beauty, like ice, our footing does betray;
  Who can tread sure on the smooth, slippery way?
    Pleased with the surface, we glide swiftly on,
      And see the dangers that we cannot shun.
      - John Dryden

Mark her majestic fabric; she's a temple
  Sacred by birth, and built by hands divine;
    Her soul's the Deity that lodges there;
      Nor is the pile unworthy of the God.
      - John Dryden

Old as I am, for ladies' love unfit,
  The power of beauty I remember yet,
    Which once inflam'd my soul, and still inspires my wit.
      - John Dryden, Cymon and Iphigenia (l. 1)

When beauty fires the blood, how love exalts the mind!
      - John Dryden, Cymon and Iphigenia (l. 41)

She, though in full-blown flower of glorious beauty,
  Grows cold, even in the summer of her age.
      - John Dryden, Oedipus (act IV, sc. 1)

What delights us in visible beauty is the invisible.
      - Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Beauty is a great gift of heaven; not for the purpose of female vanity, but a great gift for one who loves, and wishes to be beloved.
      - Maria Edgeworth

Not faster in the summer's ray,
  The spring's frail beauty fades away,
    Than anguish and decay consume,
      The smiling virgin's rosy bloom.
        Some beauty's snatch'd each day, each hour;
          For beauty is a fleeting flower;
            Then how can wisdom e'er confide
              In beauty's momentary pride?
      - Lord John Elphinstone

A beautiful form is better than a beautiful face; it gives a higher pleasure than statutes or pictures; it is the finest of the fine arts.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Accuracy is essential to beauty.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Beauty is its own excuse for being.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Beauty is the mark God sets on virtue. Every natural action is graceful. Every heroic act is also decent, and causes the place and the bystanders to shine.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Evermore in the world is this marvelous balance of beauty and disgust, magnificence and rats.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

If eyes were made for seeing, then beauty is its own excuse for being.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

In the true mythology, Love is an immortal child, and Beauty leads him as a guide; nor can we express a deeper sense than when we say, Beauty is the pilot of the young soul.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nothing is arbitrary, nothing is insulated in beauty. It depends forever on the necessary and the useful. The plumage of the bird, the mimic plumage of the insect, has a reason for its rich colors in the constitution of the animal. Fitness is so inseparable an accompaniment of beauty, that it, has been taken for it.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Such another peerless queen only could her mirror show.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson
