beauty

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on love, beauty, female, obedience, eve, and lilith

"The beauty of the female is the root of joy to the female as well as to the male, and it is no accident that the goddess of Love is older and stronger than the god.  To desire the desiring of her own beauty is the vanity of Lilith, but to desire the enjoying of her own beauty is the obedience of Eve, and to both it is in the lover that the beloved tastes her own delightfulness.  As obedience is the stairway of pleasure, so humility is the--"

A Quote by julie sarah powell on true nature, realizing, peace, relaxation, being, core, naturally, beauty, freshness, doing, meditation, practice, technique, sadhana, self, no self, and self realisation

This is NOT some stale old chore which you have got to 'do'.


The true beauty of realizing your true nature is in the freshness,
peace and deep bodily relaxation which touches to the core of your
being, flows into your everyday life and bursts forth naturally
into blossoming from within itself. Without you 'doing' a thing
about any of it.


It is very important to note that this is NOT a limited
meditation 'practice' or 'technique'.

A Quote by Diane Ackerman on womenswisdom and beauty

What do those of us who aren't tall, flawlessly sculpted adolescents do?
 Answer: Console ourselves with how relative beauty can be...
Thank heavens for the arousing qualities of zest, intelligence,
wit, curiosity, sweetness, passion, talent and grace.

Diane Ackerman (1948 -)

A Quote by Hans-Hermann Hoppe on democracy, truth, justice, beauty, poliics, envy, and ignorance

What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty.

A Quote by Alma Hogan Snell on love, beauty, food, and health

Food, medicine, beauty, and love. When we talk about them in English,
they seem so different from each other. But looking at them from
another perspective, they are not so different. Good food is a part of
good health. Good health leads to good looks. Love surrounds it all.
When we feed or heal, we share love. When we love and are loved, we
are beautiful.

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on beauty, intellectual, intellegence, talent, and ugly

"But beauty, real beauty, ends where an intellectual expression begins. Intellect is in itself a mode of exaggeration, and destroys the harmony of any face.  The moment one sits down to think, one becomes all nose, or all forehead, or something horrid."

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

A Quote by RaSun on artist, seed, brave, live, flower, soil, contemplationm water, understanding, beautiful, maker, unique, love, beauty, and dream

"Artists are the seeds, brave enough to live and flower before humanity. Our soil is contemplation, our water, its understanding. Whether my petals be beautiful to another, to I and The Maker, they are Unique and yet, only equally as beautiful as any other. Some call that being a Dreamer. I call it, being Belov'ed."

A Quote by Ernest Holmes on spirituality, god, goodness, truth, and beauty

Spirituality is natural goodness.  God is not a person; God is a presence personified in us.  Spirituality is not a thing; it is the atmosphere of God's Presence, goodness, truth, and beauty.

Ernest Holmes
