Beauty quotes

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart
~ Kahlil Gibran~

Aristotle called beauty "the gift of God;",

Socrates called it "a short-lived tyranny;"

Theophrastus, "a silent deceit;"

Theocritus, "an ivory mischief;"

Beauty pleases the eyes only;
Sweetness of disposition charms the soul
~Voltaire (1694-1778) ~
