beauty is under skin..
no body can see by the eye or first sight, you can see after long interaction, after long comunication ,
this is the real beauty,, of course exstremly difficult to find out. :wink:

:idea: Aristotle called beauty "the gift of God;"
Socrates called it "a short-lived tyranny;"
Theophrastus, "a silent deceit;"
Theocritus, "an ivory mischief;"
Carneades, "a sovereignty which stood in need of no guards." :idea:

"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." i also like this quote..

Beauty is not in the face;beauty is a light in the heart said Kahlil Gibran :D i think so too.. :wink:

Aesthetically, beauty is a cultural concept, but the way how beauty is percieved has to do with something inside of you.

It is difficult to give a definition about: What is beauty.
For me.
