What is beautiful radiates. ~ Terrence Howard
  • Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick. ~ Gwyneth Paltrow

These really are pricels quotations because each one touches on the depth of "beauty" and not on its surface alone. Certainly that inner beauty can be reflected on the outside, even of a rather plain woman, as, say, Eleanor Roosevelt. I don't believe she was ever thought beautiful by external standards, yet her compassion, brightness, intelligence and concern for those less fortunate than herself radiated from her countenance. Mother Teresa is another whose inner beauty shone through onto her face. Men, too, have a masculine beauty when their spirits show through externally.

Lovely hub, KKG! Thank you!

Thanks, Nellieanne. I do believe that you are not truly beautiful on the outside if you are ugly on the inside. As Jennifer Lopez said (paraphrased of course) you may start out with a pretty face but as you grow older you end up with the face you deserve. Thanks you for stopping in and thank you for your comment.

All quotes with truths! I like them all but if I'm to choose than it's this one

"Everything is beautiful, but not everyone sees it." Confucius

It reminds me of a quote I used in one of my Hubs'.

"Things don't change, only the way we look at them" by Carlos Castaneda.

Thanks for sharing and of course I voted up!

enjoyed your hub, people seem to focus so much on outer beauty and they forget all about the beauty from within, this is what in my opinion, exceeds all else.

KoffeeKlatch Gals 6 years ago from Sunny Florida Author

I have to agree with you mansbestfriend. If more people worried about what is on the inside instead of the outside the world would be a better place.

Lovely Hub. So much of this fits into the new book I'm finishing. Self-esteem is such a power, whether it brings up to our knees or raises us to cosmic heights.

Your writings are wonderful, and as I read your "about" paragraph, I wondered why you ever have doubted your perfection.

Keep writing. You're good.

Marzime, I think there's a lot to be said for inner beauty. You can't really be beautiful on the outside without some beauty shining out from the inside.

I love your quote hubs. This one is so inspirational, and a good reminder to do positive affirmations and keep a journal. It's an effort to get rid of that negative voice inside, but it won't do anything but harm us in the long run. Thank you for the great reminders! Voted up.
