beauty quotes

#3941 Francis Bacon

There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about beauty
#4492 Ralph Waldo Emerson

If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore, and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown! But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about beauty
#4568 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Travelling is a fool's paradise. Our first journeys discover to us the indifference of places. At home I dream that at Naples, at Rome, I can be intoxicated with beauty, and lose my sadness. I pack my trunk, embrace my friends, embark on the sea, and at last wake up in Naples, and there beside me is the stern fact, the sad self, unrelenting, identical, that I fled from. I seek the Vatican, and the palaces. I affect to be intoxicated with sights and suggestions, but I am not intoxicated. My giant goes with me wherever I go. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about beauty
#4638 Ralph Waldo Emerson

I wiped away the weeds and foam, And fetched my sea-born treasures home; But the poor, unsightly, noisome things Had left their beauty on the shore With the sun, and the sand, and the wild uproar. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about beauty
#4647 Ralph Waldo Emerson

For nature beats in perfect tune, And rounds with rhyme her every rune, Whether she work in land or sea, Or hide underground her alchemy. Thou canst not wave thy staff in air, Or dip thy paddle in the lake, But it carves the bow of beauty there, And the ripples in rhymes the oar forsake. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about beauty
#4659 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The hand that rounded Peter's dome, And groined the aisles of Christian Rome, Wrought in a sad sincerity, Himself from God he could not free; He builded better than he knew, The conscious stone to beauty grew. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about beauty
#4749 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Don't waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about beauty
#4790 Ralph Waldo Emerson

I wiped away the weeds and foam, I fetched my sea-born treasures home; But the poor, unsightly, noisome things Had left their beauty on the shore, With the sun and the sand and the wild uproar. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about beauty
#6642 William Ellery Channing

There is but a very minute portion of the creation which we can turn into food and clothes, or gratification for the body; but the whole creation may be used to minister to the sense of beauty. .

William Ellery Channing Quotes about beauty
#6891 Adlai Stevenson

A beauty is a woman you notice; a charmer is one who notices you. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about beauty
#6976 Albert Camus

We turn our backs on ; we are ashamed of beauty. Our wretched tragedies have a smell of the office clinging to them, and the blood that trickles from them is the color of printer's ink. .

Albert Camus Quotes about beauty
#6977 Albert Camus

cannot do without beauty, and this is what our era pretends to want to disregard. It steels itself to attain the absolute and authority; it wants to transfigure the world before having exhausted it, to set it to rights before having understood it. Whatever it may say, our era is deserting this world. .

Albert Camus Quotes about beauty
#7083 Albert Camus

For those of us who have been thrown into hell, mysterious melodies and the torturing images of a vanished beauty will always bring us, in the midst of crime and folly, the echo of that harmonious insurrection which bears witness, throughout the centuries, to the greatness of humanity. .

Albert Camus Quotes about beauty
#7134 Albert Camus

We all have a weakness for beauty. .

Albert Camus Quotes about beauty
#7327 Leo Tolstoy

Spiritual beauty or the good, generally not only does not coincide with the typical meaning of beauty, it is its opposite. .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about beauty
#7683 Fran Lebowitz

All God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable. The most common error made in matters of appearance is the belief that one should disdain the superficial and let the true beauty of one's soul shine through. If there are places on your body where this is a possibility, you are not attractive — you are leaking. .

Fran Lebowitz Quotes about beauty
#8789 Samuel Johnson

I am very fond of the company of ladies. I like their beauty, I like their delicacy, I like their vivacity, and I like their silence. .

Samuel Johnson Quotes about beauty
#8989 Bill Watterson

Calvin: Like delicate lace, so the threads intertwine, oh, gossamer web of wond'rous design! Such beauty and grace wild nature produces...[disgusted] Ughh, look at that spider suck out that bug's juices! p140 .

Bill Watterson Quotes about beauty
#9910 Andy Warhol

I've never met a person I couldn't call a beauty. .

Andy Warhol Quotes about beauty
#9912 Andy Warhol

When you're interested in somebody, and you think they might be interested in you, you should point out all your beauty problems and defects right away, rather than take a chance they won't notice them...On the other hand, say you have a purely temporary beauty problem—a new pimple, lackluster hair, no-sleep eyes, five extra pounds around the middle. Still, whatever it is, you should point it out...If you don't point out these things they might think that your temporary beauty problem is a permanent beauty problem...If they really do like you for yourself, they'll be willing to use their imagination to think of what you must look like without your temporary beauty problem. .

Andy Warhol Quotes about beauty
#9914 Andy Warhol

I know a girl who just looks at her face in the medicine cabinet mirror and never looks below her shoulders, and she's four or five hundred pounds but she doesn't see all that, she just sees a beautiful face and therefore she thinks she's a beauty. And therefore, I think she's a beauty, too, because I usually accept people on the basis of their self-images, because their self-images have more to do with the way they think than their objective-images do. .

Andy Warhol Quotes about beauty
#11637 Friedrich Nietzsche

When power becomes gracious and descends into the visible — such descent I call beauty. And there is nobody from whom I want beauty as much as from you who are powerful: let your kindness be your final self-conquest. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about beauty
#11706 Friedrich Nietzsche

Man believes that the world itself is filled with beauty — he forgets that it is he who has created it. He alone has bestowed beauty upon the world — alas! only a very human, an all too human, beauty. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about beauty
#13100 G. K. Chesterton

Religious and philosophical beliefs are, indeed, as dangerous as fire, and nothing can take from them that beauty of danger. .

G. K. Chesterton Quotes about beauty

To that high Capital, where kingly Death Keeps his pale court in beauty and decay, He came. .

Percy Bysshe Shelley Quotes about beauty

Meadows trim, with daisies pied, Shallow brooks, and rivers wide; Towers and balements it sees Bosomed high in tufted trees, Where perhaps some beauty lies, The cynosure of neighboring eyes. .

Good nature is more agreeable in conversation than wit, and gives a certain air to the countenance which is more amiable than beauty. .

John Gay Quotes about beauty

The boast of heraldry, the pomp of pow'r, And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave, Await alike the inevitable hour: The paths of glory lead but to the grave. .

Thomas Gray Quotes about beauty
#19619 Jane Austen

Your abuse of our gowns amuses but does not discourage me; I shall take mine to be made up next week, and the more I look at it the better it pleases me. My cloak came on Tuesday, and, though I expected a good deal, the beauty of the lace astonished me. It is too handsome to be worn - almost too handsome to be looked at. .

Jane Austen Quotes about beauty
#19710 H. G. Wells

Whatever America has to show in heroic living to-day, I doubt if she can show any thing finer than the quality of the resolve, the steadfast effort hundreds of black and coloured men are making to-day to live blamelessly, honourably, and patiently, getting for themselves what scraps of refinement, learning, and beauty they may, keeping their hold on a civilization they are grudged and denied. .

H. G. Wells Quotes about beauty

Miguel de Unamuno Quotes about beauty
#24136 Miguel de Unamuno

Physiology does not teach us how to digest, nor logic how to discourse, nor esthetics how to feel beauty or express it, nor ethics how to be good. And indeed it is well if they do not teach us how to be hypocrites; for pedantry, whether it be pedantry of logic, or of esthetics, or of ethics, is at bottom nothing but hypocrisy. .

Miguel de Unamuno Quotes about beauty
