There is no excellent beauty that hath not
some strangeness in the proportion.
If you get simple beauty and nought else,
You get about the best thing God invents.
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes.
Walks in Beauty”
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
[The idea is an old one, having been used
earlier by Shakespeare, Franklin, and Thoreau among others.
However Hungerford was the first, apparently, to phrase the
notion in such enduring words.]
“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,”—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
Keats, “Ode on
a Grecian Urn”
A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness.
Beauty is everlasting
And dust is for a time.
Distrust of Merits”
Remember that the most beautiful things in
the world are the most useless; peacocks and lilies for
The Stones of Venice
What is beautiful is good, and who is good
will soon also be beautiful. —Sappho
Beauty is all very well at first sight, but
who ever looks at it when it has been in the house three days?
Beauty is momentary in the mind—
The fitful tracing of a portal;
But in the flesh it is immortal.
The body dies; the body’s beauty lives.
“Peter Quince at the Clavier”
I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendoes,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.
“Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird”
Beauty more than bitterness
Makes the heart break.
“Vignettes Overseas: Capri”
The perception of beauty is a moral test.
It is amazing how complete is the delusion
that beauty is goodness. —Leo
The Kreutzer Sonata
The beauty of the world has two edges, one of
laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.
