Finding Beauty in Words

“I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star, fragile as a flower, a tiny sliver of one hour. I dripped it carelessly, Ah! I didn't know, I held opportunity.” ~Hazel Lee

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” ~Confucius

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.” ~Helen Keller

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

“When you reach the heart of life you shall find beauty in all things, even in the eyes that are blind to beauty.” ~Kahlil Gibran

“Beauty, more than bitterness, makes the heart break.” ~Sara Teasdale

“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.” ~Sophia Loren

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Used by Nelson Mandela in his 1994 inaugural speech (Maryanne Williamson)

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” ~Ashley Smith

“It's beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.” ~Unknown

“You don't love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her.” ~Unknown

“For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.” ~Ivan Panin

“Love of beauty is Taste. The creation of beauty is Art.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
