What is sacred among one people may be ridiculous in another and what is despised or rejected by one cultural group, may in a different environment become the cornerstone for a great edifice of strange grandeur and beauty.

— Diane Kruger

Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued.

— Jean Rostand

What saddens me is the corruption of youth and beauty, and the loss of soul, which is only replaced by money.

— Lisa Bonet

When I think of art I think of beauty. Beauty is the mystery of life. It is not in the eye it is in the mind. In our minds there is awareness of perfection.

— Agnes Martin

The very definition of ‘beauty’ is outside.

— Adam Carolla

I always loved aesthetics. Not particularly fashion, but an idea of beauty.

— Miuccia Prada

Now, I’m not saying I’m fashionable, but there are sociological interests that matter to me, things that are theoretical, political, intellectual and also concerned with vanity and beauty that we all think about but that I try to mix up and translate into fashion.

— Miuccia Prada

What sort of sap doesn’t know by now that picture-perfect beauty is all done with smoke and mirrors anyway?

— Julie Burchill

Shame, like beauty, is often in the eye of the beholder.

— Julie Burchill

The truth of the matter is, beauty is a specific thing, rare and fleeting. Some of us have it in our teens, 20s and 30s and then lose it most of us have it not at all. And that’s perfectly okay. But lying to yourself that you have it when you don’t seems to me simple-minded at best and psychotic at worst.

— Julie Burchill

What I find most upsetting about this new all-consuming beauty culture is that the obsession with good looks, and how you can supposedly attain them, is almost entirely female-driven.

— Julie Burchill

Surely being a Professional Beauty – let alone an ageing one – is one of the most insecure and doomed careers imaginable.

— Julie Burchill

I’ve always thought of beauty therapy, ‘alternative’ treatments and the like as the female equivalent of brothels – for essentially self-deceiving people who feel a bit hollow and have to pay to be touched.

— Julie Burchill

These women whose antics we smirk at good-naturedly in the pap-traps put themselves out there at least partly on their beauty they are in showbiz, and showing what they’ve got is part of their business as much as it is for male show-ponies from the Chippendales to George Clooney.

— Julie Burchill

Natural beauty takes at least two hours in front of a mirror.

— Pamela Anderson

It is not the beauty of a building you should look at its the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time.

— George Henry Lewes

Black beauty – he’s a dark horse.

— Howard Lindsay

People don’t associate red hair, pale skin, and freckles with beauty.

— Shirley Manson

I still believe that capitalism is too harsh and I believe that, even within that, there is a lot of satisfaction and beauty if you happen to be one of the lucky ones, although that doesn’t eradicate the reality of the suffering. It’s all true at once, kind of humming and sublime.

— George Saunders

Physical beauty is such a strange thing.

— Jock Sturges

I was kind of a jock in school. Beauty wasn’t something I spent a lot of time on.

— Thornton Wilder

Hollywood needs to recognise all shades of African American beauty.

— Gabrielle Union

Editing yourself is like an irksome coin toss. You’ve got to strip yourself of super ego and operate from the id. Maybe I’ve got my Freud mixed up. It’s just hard to trade a beauty shot for the performance with truth and a brightly lit zit.

— Vera Farmiga

Beauty is a radiance that originates from within and comes from inner security and strong character.

— Jane Seymour

I tried for a while to be an agricultural worker and was hopelessly bored. To me it was meaningless. I would stand around in heaps of manure and sings about the beauty of the work I wasn’t doing.

— Theodore Bikel

I tried for a while to be an agricultural worker and was hopelessly bored. I would stand around in heaps of manure and sing about the beauty of the work I wasn’t doing.

— Sloane Crosley

As Ralph’s character begins to discover the political thriller aspect of the film, he falls deeper in love with his wife, so the two run together. That’s the beauty of this film. It has fast pace and excitement, but it also has heart and soul.

— Rachel Weisz

Beauty can come in strange forms.

— James Dyson

And I think of that again as I’ve written in several of my beauty books, a lot of health comes from the proper eating habits, which are something that – you know, I come from a generation that wasn’t – didn’t have a lot of food.

— Joan Collins

Well I’ve written four beauty books as well.

— Joan Collins

Bologna is the best city in Italy for food and has the least number of tourists. With its medieval beauty, it has it all.

— Mario Batali

I think we have become obsessed with beauty and personally I’m really saddened by the way women mutilate their faces today in search of that.

— Halle Berry

Beauty, more than bitterness, makes the heart break.

— Sara Teasdale

I thought to be feminine was to give in to straight culture, or the beauty standard, but in my heart I had a flair for fashion and style. They were passions I kept secret because I didn’t understand I could love clothes and hair and makeup and still like girls.

— Beth Ditto

Thanks to capitalism, the importance placed on beauty has never been so manipulated. We are the guinea pigs force-fed ads that tell us how pathetic we are: that we will never be loved, happy or valuable unless we have the body, the face, the hair, even the personality that will apparently be ours, if only we buy their products.

— Beth Ditto

She gave up beauty in her tender youth, gave all her hope and joy and pleasant ways she covered up her eyes lest they should gaze on vanity, and chose the bitter truth.

— Leighton Meester

— Craig Ferguson

The beauty that addresses itself to the eyes is only the spell of the moment the eye of the body is not always that of the soul.

— George Sand

The trick of this thing and the beauty of this thing is that it’s a cowboy movie first and then stuff happens. Even after stuff happens it doesn’t change – it hasn’t suddenly changed into another kind of movie. It’s still a cowboy movie. And that’s what’s incredible about it because nobody has done that before, that’s new territory.

— Harrison Ford

With guys I revere, like Marcus Garvey or Malcolm X, their look is less about style than purpose and the expression of beauty. It wasn’t just about being noticed, you know?

— Mos Def

Who knows better than artists how much ugliness there is on the way to beauty, how many ghastly, mortifying missteps, how many days of granitic blockheadedness and dismaying ineptitude there is on the way to accomplishment, how partial all accomplishment is, how incomplete?

— Tony Kushner

Every man who has shown the world the way to beauty, to true culture, has been a rebel, a ‘universal’ without patriotism, without home, who has found his people everywhere.

I discovered that the horse is life itself, a metaphor but also an example of life’s mystery and unpredictability, of life’s generosity and beauty, a worthy object of repeated and ever changing contemplation.

— Jane Smiley

Beauty comes from a life well lived. If you’ve lived well, your smile lines are in the right places, and your frown lines aren’t too bad, what more do you need?

— Jennifer Garner

My mother is a big believer in being responsible for your own happiness. She always talked about finding joy in small moments and insisted that we stop and take in the beauty of an ordinary day. When I stop the car to make my kids really see a sunset, I hear my mother’s voice and smile.

— Jennifer Garner

The way in which mathematicians and physicists and historians talk is quite different, and what a physicist means by physical intuition and what a mathematician means by beauty or elegance are things worth thinking about.

— Clifford Geertz

I know it sounds a bit corny, but I do think that beauty and sexiness come from within.

— Rachel Stevens

I love the game, it’s the greatest game on earth, that’s why I can’t understand all of this talk about trying to make the game better. People talk about the high strike zone and changing this and that. Why? To speed up the game? That’s the beauty of baseball. There is no time element.

— Eric Davis

Nothing surpasses the beauty and elegance of a bad idea.

— Craig Bruce

Beauty is as relative as light and dark. Thus, there exists no beautiful woman, none at all, because you are never certain that a still far more beautiful woman will not appear and completely shame the supposed beauty of the first.

— Paul Klee

Who among us has never looked up into the heavens on a starlit night, lost in wonder at the vastness of space and the beauty of the stars?

— Jeb Bush

I am an unconventional beauty. I grew up in a high school where if you didn’t have a nose job and money and if you weren’t thin, you weren’t cool, popular, beautiful. I was always told that I wasn’t pretty enough to be on television.

— Lea Michele

Our situation today shows that beauty demands for itself at least as much courage and decision as do truth and goodness, and she will not allow herself to be separated and banned from her two sisters without taking them along with herself in an act of mysterious vengeance.

— Hans Urs von Balthasar

For me art and chess are closely related, both are forms in which the self finds beauty and expression.

— Vladimir Kramnik

But I think it is a serious issue to wonder about the other platonic absolutes of say beauty and morality.

— Edward James Olmos

You, too, women, cast away all the cowards from your embraces they will give you only cowards for children, and you who are the daughters of the land of beauty must bear children who are noble and brave.

— Giuseppe Garibaldi

All my writing is about the recognition that there is no single reality. But the beauty of it is that you nevertheless go on, walking towards utopia, which may not exist, on a bridge which might end before you reach the other side.

— Marguerite Young

I thought it might be a good move to get into a beauty contest so I tried for Miss Pennsylvania and won. I think that helped me get noticed, at least by the people of Pennsylvania.

— Sharon Stone

The beauty of a strong, lasting commitment is often best understood by men incapable of it.

— Murray Kempton

What I like about cities is that everything is king size, the beauty and the ugliness.

— Joseph Brodsky

Beauty is a precious trace that eternity causes to appear to us and that it takes away from us. A manifestation of eternity, and a sign of death as well.

A beautiful bouquet or a long-lasting flowering plant is a traditional gift for women, but I have recommended that both men and women keep fresh flowers in the home for their beauty, fragrance, and the lift they give our spirits.

— Andrew Weil

Avon invented the concept of direct marketing and direct selling beauty. And that’s still very valid to us. We’ll have a firm that will be around for another 114 years as strongly as it was the first 114.

— Andrea Jung

A representative is free delivery she’s a personal beauty consultant. Some people want that high touch.

— Andrea Jung

The game in beauty is changing so much, if your product isn’t high tech or can’t make a unique performance claim – plump your lips, reduce your lines, look glossy, and stay on for 24 hours – you can’t go to market today. I’m not just talking about a $20 lipstick, but a $5 lipstick!

— Andrea Jung

There are two ways to worry words. One is hoping for the greatest possible beauty in what is created. The other is to tell the truth.

— June Jordan

I think the 1970s will always be the decade for me. Obviously, I grew up in that era, but the beauty standard was touchable, kissable.

— Tom Ford

Faith goes out through the window when beauty comes in at the door.

— George Edward Moore

— William Shenstone

Power and beauty come from a very deep place.

— Brooke Burke

Beauty can’t amuse you, but brainwork – reading, writing, thinking – can.

— Helen Gurley Brown

Wigs have always been a part of my life and have become a staple accessory in my closet. I can remember being a little girl and hearing all the commotion in my house from my mom, aunts and grandmother when picking out their wigs for the day. It was such a good time for them and part of their everyday beauty routine.

— Sherri Shepherd

I think we should all be tolerant of each other and embrace each others’ strengths and differences and uniqueness and beauty.

— Martina McBride

I have girls who are concerned about how they look compared to models or what have you. It’s my responsibility to teach them that beauty is more than superficial.

The beauty about the D-list is that people who are on it probably don’t know they are.

— Kathy Griffin

I find, in being black, a thing of beauty: a joy a strength a secret cup of gladness.

— Ossie Davis

I’m only wanted by directors for the image I give off, and it makes me angry. I always wanted to be an actor and not a beauty pageant winner.

— Jude Law

My idea of beauty is somebody that doesn’t have to try too much, someone who is effortless and fresh.

— Jessica Ennis

The English Bible – a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.

— Thomas B. Macaulay

A supermodel needed to be able to be on ‘Sports Illustrated,’ to be able to walk runways, to be able to do beauty ads, to be on covers. And the girls now can no longer be on covers and be in the ads because your actresses have taken over all the jobs. I don’t know what happened, but we want our jobs back.

— Kim Alexis

Familiarity is a magician that is cruel to beauty but kind to ugliness.

— Janis Ian

It’s nice to just embrace the natural beauty within you.

— Victoria Justice

A few years ago I lost 30 pounds, and people still wanted to criticize. And honestly, I’m happy with myself if I’m a little heavier. I realized: ‘Why am I trying to conform to someone else’s idea of beauty?’ I think I’m beautiful either way.

— Khloe Kardashian

We have magnificent brains, but we use a great deal of our brilliance to keep ourselves stuck and ignorant, to keep ourselves from not shining. We are so afraid of our beauty and radiance and brilliance because it scared the adults around us when we were children.

— Patricia Sun

If I weren’t performing, I’d be a beauty editor or a therapist. I love creativity, but I also love to help others. My mother was a hairstylist, and they listen to everyone’s problems – like a beauty therapist!

— Beyonce Knowles

You don’t know what the Chinese expect in the way of beauty. The presentation is just a farce. You come into a room filled with 50 people and they don’t talk to you. There’s very little interaction.

— Helmut Jahn

Los Angeles is like a beauty parlor at the end of the universe.

— Emily Mortimer

A special kind of beauty exists which is born in language, of language, and for language.

— Gaston Bachelard

— Claude Debussy

The ideal has many names, and beauty is but one of them.

— Ninon de L’Enclos

As an inspiration to the author, I do not think the cat can be over-estimated. He suggests so much grace, power, beauty, motion, mysticism. I do not wonder that many writers love cats I am only surprised that all do not.

— Carl Van Vechten

I’m proud that today, at 43 years old, I’ve come to value the aging process and focus on inner rather than outer beauty.

— Carre Otis

There’s no such thing is aging, but maturing and knowledge. It’s beautiful, I call that beauty.

— Celine Dion

Not longer loved or fostered by religion, beauty is lifted from its face as a mask, and its absence exposes features on that face which threaten to become incomprehensible to man.

— Hans Urs von Balthasar

We no longer dare to believe in beauty and we make of it a mere appearance in order the more easily to dispose of it.

— Hans Urs von Balthasar

I believe every chess player senses beauty, when he succeeds in creating situations, which contradict the expectations and the rules, and he succeeds in mastering this situation.

— Vladimir Kramnik

The development of beauty in chess never depends on you alone. No matter how much imagination and creativity you invest, you still do not create beauty. Your opponent must react at the same highest level.

— Vladimir Kramnik

I really wanted there to be something in my life that I enjoy just for the beauty of it.

— Robert Caro

The New York City Ballet is obviously speaking to a whole new generation and bringing it the same wonder and beauty that it brought previous generations.

Many a genius has been slow of growth. Oaks that flourish for a thousand years do not spring up into beauty like a reed.

— George Henry Lewes

Every performance is different. That’s the beauty of it.

— Van Morrison

My daily beauty regimen is definitely always in the mornings, and at night, always washing my face with a basic cleanser. I also use a moisturizer with SPF to follow up.

— Shay Mitchell

We all have to find beauty within us, as opposed to just our exterior.

— Shay Mitchell

People tend not to use this word beauty because it’s not intellectual – but there has to be an overlap between beauty and intellect.

— Tadao Ando

One night I’ll be in Los Angeles and it’ll be a Latin crowd, and then another night I’ll go to Fresno and it’ll be an all-black crowd. To me, that’s the beauty of the music.

— Pitbull

That’s the beauty of being a comedian – it’s the one job you’re allowed to do that. We’re lucky. We’re really lucky.

— Colin Quinn

The difference between Marilyn Monroe and the early Pamela Anderson is not that great. What’s amazing is that the taste of American men and international tastes in terms of beauty have essentially stayed the same. Styles change, but our view of beauty stays the same.

— Hugh Hefner

I felt Joyce was an influence on my fiction, but in a very general way, as a kind of inspiration and a model for the beauty of language.

— Don DeLillo

The beauty of having a producer is that you have someone who says, You’re finished.

— Sheryl Crow

Comics are so full of amazing work. And I can’t look at a drawing of a woman without thinking of, for instance, Wallace Wood and his amazing way of capturing beauty.

— Frank Miller

I cannot go to Montreal without going to Beauty’s, my favorite place for breakfast, where I have the Mish-Mash omelet with hot dogs, salami, eggs, green peppers, and onions, and the best banana bread in the world. It’s legendary!

— Gail Simmons

Beauty set up distance between other people and me. It warped their behavior.

— Candice Bergen

People see you as an object, not as a person, and they project a set of expectations onto you. People who don’t have it think beauty is a blessing, but actually it sets you apart.

— Candice Bergen

A child does not notice the greatness and the beauty of nature and the splendor of God in his works.

— Rudolf Otto

Once you go inside and weed through the muck, you will find the real beauty, the truth about yourself.

— Lindsay Wagner

I used to wear a lot of red lipstick, and when I got a pimple, I’d cover it up with eyeliner to turn it into a beauty mark.

— Selma Blair

I’m flatchested, I’m short, I’m brunette, I have droopy eyes, and so people have a hard time casting me as a ‘beauty.’

— Selma Blair

Doors open because you’re beautiful, but I wouldn’t cultivate beauty to the exclusion of brains.

Beauty lasts five minutes. Maybe longer if you have a good plastic surgeon.

— Tia Carrere

Beauty is produced by the pleasing appearance and good taste of the whole, and by the dimensions of all the parts being duly proportioned to each other.

— Marcus V. Pollio

That’s the beauty of music. You can take a theme from a Bach sacred chorale and improvise. It doesn’t make any difference where the theme comes from the treatment of it can be jazz.

— Dave Brubeck

Asian people have a unique way about them and a different sense of beauty. It’s exotic to me. I like they way Asians project their feelings. There’s a hardness to the culture, but at the same time there’s a delicateness.

— Paz Vega

This is the artist, then, life’s hungry man, the glutton of eternity, beauty’s miser, glory’s slave.

— Tom Wolfe

Many attempts have been made by writers on art and poetry to define beauty in the abstract, to express it in the most general terms, to find some universal formula for it.

— Walter Pater

Such discussions help us very little to enjoy what has been well done in art or poetry, to discriminate between what is more and what is less excellent in them, or to use words like beauty, excellence, art, poetry, with a more precise meaning than they would otherwise have.

— Walter Pater

What is important, then, is not that the critic should possess a correct abstract definition of beauty for the intellect, but a certain kind of temperament, the power of being deeply moved by the presence of beautiful objects.

— Walter Pater

One of the most beautiful passages of Rousseau is that in the sixth book of Confessions, where he describes the awakening in him of the literary sense. Of such wisdom, the poetic passion, the desire of beauty, the love of art for its own sake, has most.

— Walter Pater

I mean the beauty of being a writer is it’s not like being a swimmer. When they were talking about our Olympic swimmers and they’d say, ‘Oh she’s so old,’ and she’s all of 25 or something. So the beauty for a writer is that you can keep doing it right into your dotage, and I hope to be able to keep doing it as long as I can get away with it, yeah.

— Geraldine Brooks

I had a lot of resentment for a while toward Kim Novak. But I don’t mind her anymore. She’s okay. We’ve become friends. I even asked her before this trip for some beauty tips.

— Kim Novak

But the beauty of Einstein’s equations, for example, is just as real to anyone who’s experienced it as the beauty of music. We’ve learned in the 20th century that the equations that work have inner harmony.

— Edward Witten

I think beauty comes from within. If you’re happy and look at life in the best way you can, even when there are problems, it can make you beautiful on the outside.

— Faith Hill

I think there’s a great beauty to having problems. That’s one of the ways we learn.

— Herbie Hancock

Truth is a thing immortal and perpetual, and it gives to us a beauty that fades not away in time.

I think beauty comes from within, and society paints a ridiculous picture.

— Rachel Bilson

My daily beauty regimen consists of washing my face before bed and putting on moisturizer.

— Rachel Bilson

My unusual beauty tip is that I often use Vaseline to take my make up off. It works great and is good for sensitive skin.

— Rachel Bilson

I envy the sensibility in Europe, appreciating beauty in women as they age. I’m going to go that way. I might dye my gray hair for a bit, but beyond that the buck stops. I’m not having any work done.

— Rachel Bilson

You may keep your beauty and your health, unless you destroy them yourself, or discourage them to stay with you, by using them ill.

— William Temple

So every creative act strives to attain an absolute status it longs to create a world of beauty to triumph over chaos and convert it to order.

— Rowan D. Williams

Oh who can tell the range of joy or set the bounds of beauty?

— Sara Teasdale

Music, as many people have said, is the universal language. Of course points are made which make you think about things, but ultimately it makes you feel. And that’s why people remember more songs that have meant something during their life than films. They start to define periods in your life, and that’s kind of the beauty of it.

— Scott Weiland

No single man can be taken as a model for a perfect figure, for no man lives on earth who is endowed with the whole of beauty.

— Albrecht Durer

Music, art, theater. I’m just a big fan of beauty.

— Jerry Hall

There’s a sadness to the human condition that I think music is good for. It gives a counterpoint to the visual beauty, and adds depth to pictures that they wouldn’t have if the music wasn’t there.

— Mike Figgis

The idea that happiness could have a share in beauty would be too much of a good thing.

— Walter Benjamin

I remember reminding myself that beauty is an opinion, not a fact. And it has always made me feel better.

— Hayden Panettiere

The thought came to me that all one loves in art becomes beautiful. Beauty is nothing but the expression of the fact that something is being loved. Only thus could she be defined.

— Robert Musil

I have a real passion for many aspects of home lifestyle and beauty.

— Rachel Roy

The more people explore the world, the more they realize in every country there’s a different aesthetic. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

— Helena Christensen

There will always be a desire for something new, fresh and innovative, as well as a yearning and respect for timeless elegance and beauty.

— Helena Christensen

The difference between utility and utility plus beauty is the difference between telephone wires and the spider web.

— Edwin Way Teale

I felt I had to share Idaho with my friend from New York because he’d shared New York with me, so I was going to share the beauty of nature with a man who went to museums and clubs late at night. But there was nothing to do where I lived at night.

— Mariel Hemingway

Beauty comes from the inside.

— Kathy Ireland

The South is very beautiful but its beauty makes one sad because the lives that people live here, and have lived here, are so ugly.

— James Baldwin

For me, a page of good prose is where one hears the rain and the noise of battle. It has the power to give grief or universality that lends it a youthful beauty.

— John Cheever

After ‘Freaks and Geeks,’ I dealt with several producers who wanted to cover up all my beauty marks, every single mole on my body. They tried to cover them on my first two episodes of ‘Dawson’s Creek,’ and it just looked ridiculous, so I had to put my foot down. But it’s not something I’m insecure about.

— Busy Philipps

I recognize in thieves, traitors and murderers, in the ruthless and the cunning, a deep beauty – a sunken beauty.

— Jean Genet

As a mom, I don’t have much time for beauty.

— Idina Menzel

The pattern of a newspaperman’s life is like the plot of ‘Black Beauty.’ Sometimes he finds a kind master who gives him a dry stall and an occasional bran mash in the form of a Christmas bonus, sometimes he falls into the hands of a mean owner who drives him in spite of spavins and expects him to live on potato peelings.

— A. J. Liebling

The beauty of doing film is that you construct whatever you do block by block and you can build something that will stay.

— Michel Gondry

As a girl, you’re supposed to love Sleeping Beauty. I mean, who wants to love Sleeping Beauty when you can be Aladdin?

— Ellen Page

I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them.

— Janelle Monae

Some songs you get. Some songs you may not. And I think that’s the beauty of art: to question and to ask, to understand the deeper meaning after two or three or four listenings.

— Janelle Monae

I know that I’ve got big ears and a big forehead and that my hair sticks up. But I’m happy with myself. I’m not necessarily trying to win a beauty pageant here.

— Clay Aiken

My theory of characterization is basically this: Put some dirt on a hero, and put some sunshine on the villain, one brush stroke of beauty on the villain.

— Justin Cronin

I think the beauty looks I most regret are those I was persuaded into.

— Dita Von Teese

Physical beauty isn’t so impressive to me.

— Dita Von Teese

I love glamour and artificial beauty. I love the idea of artifice and dressing up and makeup and hair.

I like to find the beauty in the ugly. When I’m in a thrift store, I gravitate toward pieces I know I’ll wear a ton, and insane pieces that I’m sure most people would consider gross.

She truly loved her music. She could do everything! She had flawless rhythm, flawless pitch, flawless feeling, and flawless beauty.

— Narada Michael Walden

I first fell in love with music when I was a little boy. When I first heard music, I felt the beauty in it.

These things are what drew me in initially.

— Narada Michael Walden

As long as I love Beauty, I am young.

— W. H. Davies

When I first thought of the idea for ‘Sweet Valley High,’ I loved the idea of high school as microcosm of the real world.
