Beauty Quotes

Quotations
Quote of the Day

Unfortunately, moral beauty in art - like physical beauty in a person - is extremely perishable. It is nowhere so durable as artistic or intellectual beauty. Moral beauty has a tendency to decay very rapidly into sententiousness or untimeliness.
View quotes by Susan Sontag

View quotes by Aristotle

I recognize in thieves, traitors and murderers, in the ruthless and the cunning, a deep beauty - a sunken beauty.
View quotes by Jean Genet

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty - a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture.
View quotes by Bertrand Russell

Love built on beauty, soon as beauty, dies (Elegies 'The Anagram')
View quotes by John Donne

May she be granted beauty and yet not, Beauty to make a stranger's eye distraught.
View quotes by William Butler Yeats

Beauty ought to look a little surprised: it is the emotion that best suits her face. The beauty who does not look surprised, who accepts her position as her due - she reminds us too much of a prima donna.
View quotes by E M Forster

Beauty is our weapon against nature; by it we make objects, giving them limit, symmetry, proportion. Beauty halts and freezes the melting flux of nature.
View quotes by Camille Paglia

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, Isle of Beauty, Fare thee well! ['Isle of Beauty']
View quotes by Thomas Bayly

For he being dead, with him is beauty slain, And, beauty dead, black chaos comes again. Venus and Adonis line 1019

'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,' —that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
View quotes by John Keats

Here lies a most beautiful lady,
Light of step and heart was she;
I think she was the most beautiful lady
That ever was in the West Country.
But beauty vanishes; beauty passes;
However rare - rare it be;
And when I crumble, who will remember
This lady of the West Country?
('Epitaph', 1912)
View quotes by Walter De La Mare

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.
