Beauty is not caused. It is.
My heart that was rapt away by the wild cherry blossoms -- will it return to my body when they scatter?
Tell me, shepherds, have you seen
My Flora pass this way?
In shape and feature Beauty's queen,
In pastoral array.
Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.
Beauty is the lover's gift.
Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart.
All kinds of beauty do not inspire love; there is a kind which
only pleases the sight, but does not captivate the affections.
[Sp., No todas hermosuras enamoran, que algunas alegran la vista,
y no rinden la voluntad.]
The beautiful are never desolate;
But some one alway loves them--God or man.
If man abandons, God himself takes them.
Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it
And behold there was a very stately palace before him, the name
of which was Beautiful.
Beauty soon grows familiar to the lover,
Fades in his eye, and palls upon the sense.
Who doth not feel, until his failing sight
Faints into dimness with its own delight,
His changing cheek, his sinking heart confess,
The might--the majesty of Loveliness?
A lovely being, scarcely formed or moulded,
A rose with all its sweetest leaves yet folded.
It sometimes happens that a woman is handsomer at twenty-nine than she was ten years before
