Quotes about Beauty 3

  • Taught from infancy that beauty is woman's sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison. --Mary Wollstonecraft
  • Strange that the vanity which accompanies beauty- excusable, perhaps, when there is such great beauty, or at any rate understandable- should persist after the beauty was gone. --Elizabeth Russell
  • I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want- an adorable pancreas? --Jean Kerr
  • It is generally a feminine eye that first detects the moral deficiencies hidden under the dear deceit of beauty. --George Eliot
  • In the beautiful, man sets himself up as the standard of perfection; in select cases he worships himself in it. . . . 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
  • I have often asked myself what could be the point of this mystification we call life. It is to recognize what is beautiful, it is to love. Those who do not love and do not recognize beauty are really and truly the mystified ones. As for us, we have the right to whistle at the great mystificator. --Hector Berlioz
