A discussion on beauty

A question is put - what is beauty?.

I like to answer in simple words, without quotations.

In everybody's experience, beauty is that which attracts.It mat be the features, figure, character, knowledge, modesty, anything!Beauty always delights. Beauty is that which involuntarily attracts appreciation.Beauty lies in the viewer. To some extent, in the object too. The appreciator understands and appreciates beauty according to his culture and taste.That which doesn't delights one, is not recognized by him as 'beauty'

It is often said that beauty is ever living. This should not be taken in verbal sense. Its meaning is- the beautiful object may perish. But the delight fulness it created, the joy it spread, the divinity it aroused, the warmth, they never die. In that sense, beauty is always eternal.It is in this sense only Keats declared-'A thing of beauty is a joy for ever'.

Recently, one reader of this article has reacted that beauty lies in character, not in appearance. He is correct as for as the philosophical side of the concept is concerned. But here we are discussing bout the practical meaning of beauty i.e.-what external characters of a thing makes us to call it 'beautiful'? From this angle, it is necessary to say that a thing, to be called beautiful, should have good features, good workmanship, neatness, and such other characteristics that blossom our mind.

for me, the definition of beauty lies within the soul and character of a person. what use is appearance if your character is as dark as the night.
