Beauty

What is your definition of beauty?

“Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.”  W. Somerset Maugham

Do you agree?

“Sometimes people are beautiful not in looks, not in what they say, just in what they are” Markus Zusak

 “Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly lies to the bone. Beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own! Create and cultivate Inner Beauty that never fades away but grows and matures with Time!”  Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Thank you.
