BEAUTY.—A sun which dwells in the souls of all… ~”A Chapter of Definitions,” Daily Crescent, 1848 June 23rd
No churlish moralist ever uttered a falser maxim than that “Beauty is but skin deep.” Why Beauty is so deep that nobody has ever got to the bottom of it. ~T.C. Henley, “Beauty,” A Handful of Paper Shavings, 1861
Beauty is a nectar which intoxicates the soul. ~T.C. Henley, “Beauty,” 1851
Beauty is ordained by nature to excite love… ~Vicesimus Knox (1752–1821), Winter Evenings, “Evening LXXIV: Of an Excessive Attachment to the World”
Beauty! what can be said of it? what is it? I look around, to see some object specially beautiful, on which to expend my panegyrics. There is the deep fathomless azure above me; there is the sea, the wild, open, careering ocean; there is that bright clear eye which ever lights my solitude; there is a fair girl, a beautiful boy; there are the stars looking down from heaven; there is beauty in the human countenance, beauty in looks, beauty in thoughts, beauty in actions. What shall I say! I am bewildered; beauty overwhelms me. I am dumb, who would emulate the oratory of an archangel. I am lost in the magnitude of my theme… ~T.C. Henley, “Beauty,” 1851
What is really beautiful needs no adorning. We do not grind down the pearl upon a polishing stone. ~Sataka, quoted in Maturin M. Ballou, Edge-Tools of Speech, 1886
Beauty unites all things, links together flower and star, with chains more certain than those of reason. The poet, the artist, thus finds the clue which guides them in their pilgrimage throughout the world. ~Henry James Slack (1818–1896), The Ministry of the Beautiful, 1850
Madame, beauty is always queen, and the whole world her empire. ~Joseph II, to Jeanne Bécu, Countess du Barry, at Versailles [“La beauté est toujours reine.” —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
The criterion of true beauty is that it increases on examination; of false, that it lessens. ~Fulke Greville (1554–1628)
Beauty is man’s voucher of immorality. ~T.C. Henley, “Beauty,” 1851
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike. This natural beauty-hunger is made manifest in the little window-sill gardens of the poor, though perhaps only a geranium slip in a broken cup, as well as in the carefully tended rose and lily gardens of the rich, the thousands of spacious city parks and botanical gardens, and in our magnificent National parks — the Yellowstone, Yosemite, Sequoia, etc. — Nature’s sublime wonderlands, the admiration and joy of the world. ~John Muir, The Yosemite
[B]eauty is given to remind us that the soul should be kept as fair and perfect in its proportions as the temple in which it dwells. ~Lydia Maria Child, Philothea: A Romance, 1836
Beauty, its perception, its feeling, to bathe and revel in beauty, is the most complete human delight of which man is capable; and though some have been marred in this pure faculty of enjoyment, by rough contact with a host of unhandsome beings and circumstances, yet sometimes a ray of beauty will pierce to their benighted heart, and send a thrill of joy through their whole being. The man will sometimes catch a faint glimpse of that divinity, and then again be lost in the vortex of utilitarianism. ~T.C. Henley, “Beauty,” 1851
Had the price of looking been blindness, I would have looked. ~Ralph Ellison, “Battle Royal,” 1947
But Beauty is a beam from Heaven,
That dazzles blind our reason.
~Thomas Campbell, “Senex’s Soliloquy on His Youthful Idol,” 1835
In the Phædrus of Plato, we find this petition in the mouth of Socrates: “O gracious Pan! and ye other gods who preside over this place! grant that I may be beautiful within; and that those external things, which I have, may be such as may best agree with a right internal disposition of mind; and that I may account him to be rich, who is wise and just.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Prayers,” in The Dial, July 1842 [Quoted Socrates by J.K. Hoyt and Anna L. Ward, 1881, as: “I pray thee, O God, that I may be beautiful within.” —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
