What is Beauty?

Beauty is different things to different people. To know this all you have to do is look at the images on your computer labeled beauty. To some it is beauty of face and body, to others it is what's inside that makes a person beautiful. There are some who equate beauty with nature - an animal, a body of water, or a breathtaking landscape. No matter who you are there is always something that you consider beautiful.

      Definitely one of the world's most commented on topics. I particularly liked the ones toward the bottom my culture/country. They say alot about how beauty is judged within that culture!

      For it is true now, as it always was and always will be, that to be free is the same thing as to be pious, to be wise, to be temperate and just, to be frugal and abstinent, and to be magnanimous and brave; and to be the opposite of all these is the same as to be a slave.

      Rome’s imperial power, however, was also derived from an important psychological reality. Civis Romanus sum–”I am a Roman citizen”–was the highest possible self-definition, a source of pride, and an aspiration for many. Eventually granted even to those not of Roman birth, the exalted status of the Roman citizen was an expression of cultural superiority that justified the imperial power’s sense of mission. It not only legitimated Rome’s rule, but it also inclined those subject to it to desire assimilation and inclusion in the imperial structure.

      Awesome material! I was looking for something on "beauty" to use in a frustrating project I'm working on. Lots of what you used I haven't heard, and I'm kinda surprised at some of the authors you listed. Kafka? Who knew...sweet.

      One of my favorites on beauty came from a guy I was with, went like this:

      "There's an Italian painter, named Carlotti who defined beauty. He said it was the summation of the parts working together in such a way that nothing needed to be added, taken away or altered."

      At the time I thought it was the sweetest thing I'd ever heard. Of course, now that same guy hates my guts--ending things and all. Pretty sure he wants backsies on this one ;->. Oh well, I was really unhappy.

      This had to have taken a lot of time! Great hub!
