I truly hope every girl or woman feels beautiful. And I wish I did more. That's why this batch of quotes is about beauty....

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it
with us or we find it not. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. ~John Muir

Our hearts are drunk with a beauty our eyes could never see. ~George
W. Russell

I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful. ~Author

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. ~Kahlil

Against Him those women sin who torment their skin with potions, stain
their cheeks with rouge and extend the line of their eyes with black
coloring. Doubtless they are dissatisfied with God's plastic skill.
In their own persons they convict and censure the Artificer of all things.

That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, but that which is
good is always beautiful. ~Ninon de L'Enclos

Beauty comes in all sizes, not just size 5. ~Roseanne

I don't like standard beauty - there is no beauty without
strangeness. ~Karl Lagerfeld

Beauty comes as much from the mind as from the eye. ~Grey

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. ~Confucius

Beauty... is the shadow of God on the universe. ~Gabriela Mistral, DesolacĂ­on

Beauty?... To me it is a word without sense because I do not know where its
meaning comes from nor where it leads to. ~Pablo Picasso

Beauty isn't worth thinking about; what's important is your mind. You
don't want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head. ~Garrison Keillor
