Emma Watson
“I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do an interview with photographs people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?’ My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder.”
Emma Watson

Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn

Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know”

“Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.”
Albert Camus

Anton Chekhov
“You have lost your reason and taken the wrong path. You have taken lies for truth, and hideousness for beauty. You would marvel if, owing to strange events of some sorts, frogs and lizards suddenly grew on apple and orange trees instead of fruit, or if roses began to smell like a sweating horse; so I marvel at you who exchange heaven for earth. I don't want to understand you.”
Anton Chekhov

Khalil Gibran
“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.”
Khalil Gibran

Sophia Loren
“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.”
Sophia Loren

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Oscar Wilde
“As long as a woman can look ten years younger than her daughter, she is perfectly satisfied”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Andy Warhol

“Flawed, we're truly interesting, truly memorable, and yes, truly beautiful.”
Justina Chen, North of Beautiful

C. JoyBell C.
“Elegance is a glowing inner peace. Grace is an ability to give as well as to receive and be thankful. Mystery is a hidden laugh always ready to surface! Glamour only radiates if there is a sublime courage & bravery within: glamour is like the moon; it only shines because the sun is there.”
C. JoyBell C.

Chuck Palahniuk
“Besides, it happens fast for some people and slow for some, accidents or gravity, but we all end up mutilated. Most women know this feeling of being more and more invisible everyday.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

Naomi Wolf
“Sadly, the signals that allow men and women to find the partners who most please them are scrambled by the sexual insecurity initiated by beauty thinking. A woman who is self-conscious can't relax to let her sensuality come into play. If she is hungry she will be tense. If she is "done up" she will be on the alert for her reflection in his eyes. If she is ashamed of her body, its movement will be stilled. If she does not feel entitled to claim attention, she will not demand that airspace to shine in. If his field of vision has been boxed in by "beauty"--a box continually shrinking--he simply will not see her, his real love, standing right before him.”
Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth

Bret Easton Ellis
“The better you look, the more you see.”
Bret Easton Ellis, Glamorama

Suzanne Collins
“Having an eye for beauty isn't the same thing as a weakness...except possibly when it comes to you.”
Suzanne Collins

Richard Dawkins
“After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life. Within decades we must close our eyes again. Isn’t it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it? This is how I answer when I am asked—as I am surprisingly often—why I bother to get up in the mornings.”
Richard Dawkins

Ani DiFranco
“I don't take good pictures 'cause I have the kind of beauty that moves.”
Ani DiFranco

Madeleine L'Engle
“People are more than just the way they look.”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Wrinkle in Time

T.H. White
“Life is such unutterable hell, solely because it is sometimes beautiful. If we could only be miserable all the time, if there could be no such things as love or beauty or faith or hope, if I could be absolutely certain that my love would never be returned: how much more simple life would be. One could plod through the Siberian salt mines of existence without being bothered about happiness. Unfortunately the happiness is there. There is always the chance (about eight hundred and fifty to one) that another heart will come to mine. I can't help hoping, and keeping faith, and loving beauty. Quite frequently I am not so miserable as it would be wise to be.”
T.H. White, Ghostly, Grim and Gruesome

Dan Simmons
“To see and feel one's beloved naked for the first time is one of life's pure, irreducible epiphanies. If there is a true religion in the universe, it must include that truth of contact or be forever hollow. To make love to the one true person who deserves that love is one of the few absolute rewards of being a human being, balancing all of the pain, loss, awkwardness, loneliness, idiocy, compromise, and clumsiness that go with the human condition. To make love to the right person makes up for a lot of mistakes.”
Dan Simmons, The Rise of Endymion

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
Ashley Smith

Dante Alighieri
“Beauty awakens the soul to act.”
Dante Alighieri

“Outer beauty attracts, but inner beauty captivates.”
Kate Angell, Squeeze Play

Leo Tolstoy
“All the diversity, all the charm, and all the beauty of life are made up of light and shade.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Khalil Gibran
“Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand.”
Khalil Gibran

Anne Brontë
“It is foolish to wish for beauty. Sensible people never either desire it for themselves or care about it in others. If the mind be but well cultivated, and the heart well disposed, no one ever cares for the exterior.”
Anne Brontë, Agnes Grey

John Muir
“On no subject are our ideas more warped and pitiable than on death. ... Let children walk with nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life, and that the grave has no victory, for it never fights.”
John Muir, A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf

Thomas More
“A pretty face may be enough to catch a man, but it takes character and good nature to hold him.”
Thomas More, Utopia
