We could never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make us wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf, the flowers, the birds, etc. Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

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

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bird, the flower, the small child, the smiling faces, etc. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Life is beautiful when we live to our fullest potential, and fight for our dreams; most of all, when we are always grateful for the gift of life and the many blessings that we have.

Each of us has our own insecurities, regardless of how we look or how people perceive us, but sometimes we give our insecurities too much power. We must remind ourselves that real beauty has very little to do with the structure of someone's face nor body. It is that which we create goodness, truth and honesty in our lives that will live on for all time to come. It is neither spending our lives accumulating material things that will only turn to dust and ashes.

Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.-

H. G. Wells

I have learned that beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. There are no better cosmetics than a severe temperance and purity, modesty and humility, a gracious temper and calmness of spirit; and there is no true beauty without the signatures of these graces in the very expression. It's about having a beautiful mind, a good heart and a kind soul.

Sometimes outer beauty, no matter how abundant, cannot mask the ugliness one tries to hide inside. 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. Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all those around us and the whole of nature and its beauty.

There is great beauty in going through life without anxiety nor fear; half our fears are baseless, and the other half discreditable; that one of the best beauty remedies is definitely smiling; and if we have a good sense of humor and a good approach to life, that is beautiful.

I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within. -Plautus
