    Mother nature at her best. I work in an area that is absolutely gorgeous. You would have to pay someone to see sights like this. We get paid to work there.
    On the other hand if you are talking about another beauty, well, I would have to say that beauty comes from within. It is not what you see on the surface, but is what is really deep down. For anyone to see it truly you need to look deeper.
    For the beautiful people of the world (fantastic model types) you need to get a better picture of what is out in the real world. Sorry to be so frank.

    Beauty is the truth behind the smile.  It's beyond what everyone else sees.  It's noticing a special and unique feature.  It is a feeling given off, provoking a different experience in all who see.  Beauty is real, timeless and pure.

    It has two meanings to me.  Some people have beauty on the surface.  They look nice and have beautiful bodies.  Others have beauty underneath.  They have a very kind heart and does unselfish things to help others.

    I have to say nature's beauty is the first vision that comes to mind when I hear the word beauty. Mother Nature is quite a mistress. She is beautiful and she is vengeful.

    Beauty is symmetry, harmony, wholeness and aesthetics. Beauty always gives us a feeling of admiration, attraction and even devotion. Sometimes it can also give us addiction. There can be a beautiful melody, a beautiful sight or a beautiful performance. There can be a beauty of a movement, like a beautiful dance or a view of an elegant nice-moving horse-rider. Something can taste beautifully or smell beautifully. Beautiful things fill us up and make us float, dream, desire.

    When I hear the word beauty the first thing that comes to mind is wildlife and the great open spaces of nature. How the grandeur of National Parks and even the backyard has its own beauty.

    When I see the word 'Beauty', strangely...the first thing that comes to mind is the Francis Ford Coppola [produced] movie - "Black Stallion". I first saw the film when I was pretty young, 6 or 7...and I remember what an impact it had on me at such a young age...the beginning especially, during the sinking ship scene...and later, when the boy wakes up on the beach and 'the Black' is standing over him...and promptly saves him from a venomous snake.

    I could speak about many other forms of beauty...but there are such rare moments where animals are majestic to us humans. Usually we simply look down upon them, or eye them with pity and possibly guilt. It seems to be only true animal lovers that may look upon their favorite species as 'beautiful'. But when I was a very young boy, watching that black, wild Arabian horse race as fast as it could with young Alec riding bareback through the desert...was as close to understanding beauty as I'd known at that time.

    Happiness.  When I think of beauty, true unabashed beauty, I can't help but smile as I feel some sort of calm coming over me.  I imagine the sun setting, or the feeling of the air after a spring rain.  I see the simple flower sitting on my kitchen table, or the love of a child.  In every situation it is a calm, peaceful, happiness that settles onto me whenever beauty enters the picture.

    Flawed perfection.

    What truly makes anything beautiful is it's flaws, be it the beauty in mother nature, be it in the physical appearance of a man or woman. Flaws are beautiful because they define uniqueness, individuality and natural grace.

    For me flaw defines perfection, thus it is beautiful.

    For me the word beauty means freedom, peace of my inner soul. When ever i heard about the word beauty its seems like the whole universe is in peace. Everyone get proper food and have a smile on their face.
    Beauty means for me like you can do what so ever you want to do. You are free from any kind of boundaries, rules and regulations. I wish i can color this whole universe with 7colors of rainbow and make this earth more valuable than Heaven. This is what comes in my mind when ever i heard about the word beauty.

    While studying in the computer lab, I happen to gaze through the glass window of students reading, joining in study groups, putting all of the focus of their dreams within the pages of those books. The smile, The laughs, The serious stares of trying to comprehend what they were reading. Today I saw the beauty in learning and all that is gained from it. Thanks for asking this question. beauty can be whatever you percieve It to be.

    I would like to have thought of dragonflies dancing in total peace and harmony, the crashing of waves against the shore, or the smile on ones face when they gain all hope. And I did.
    But society has corrupted our definition of beauty. Many of us are lucky enough to know that we are truly beautiful. We really are. But our world has formed a twisted, ugly take on the word. Magazines, TV shows, celebrities. It has all caused us to stutter on the word.
    'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder' I know what is truly beautiful, and I wont let what anybody says take that away from me.

    Understanding, chaos and mystery. These are things that intrigue me and where I find beauty. If you were talking in a more physical sense of the word, I would say the most beautiful part of the female body( as a male and in my opinion) would have to be her eyes. I find that I am attracted to they eyes, and personality (i.e not a total bitch(pardon me)).

    To be honest, I think of hair. I can wear beautiful clothes and great makeup but if my hair is a mess I don't feel beautiful. I know I should say something deeper than external beauty but that was the first thing that came to mind.

    The first thing that comes to my mind is the saying: "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder."

    And I think there is a lot of truth in that. What you perceive as beautiful may not be beautiful to others. Take for example, woman. We all have our own perception what makes a beautiful woman. Some like them thin, some like them roly-poly, some like them tall, some like them short, etc..

    Even in arts, it is difficult to decide what makes something beautiful. Take for example, modern art. I can't appreciate the drawings of Picasso. If you ask me, I think my kids' doodlings are way better. ;-)

    The intricacy of the universe. It is a beautiful thing (and frightening), looking out into space at the countless stars, the comets, the vastness of it all and then realizing that we (the human race) are more important than all of that. We are more important than the most beautiful galaxies, even the most beautiful flower or work of art. But our beauty is not from the outside. Although there is physical beauty, I'm not talking about that kind of beauty. What I am referring to is the beauty of being created as more than just something physical. The image of God we carry, although tainted by sin, gives us the ability to appreciate beauty and interact with the rest of the world. Although physical beauty is something to be appreciated, we are more than that, we are sons and daughters of God.
    We are deposed Kings and Queens. Capable of the most atrocious acts of violence and the creating some of the most beautiful works of art. Yet, we are beautiful, not because the universe made us that way, but because we are created in God's image.

    And doesn't beauty hinge on this? Could the natural causes of evolution, in all its vastness of space and time, create in us an appreciation for the hidden beauties of this world...the beauties beyond physical appearance? I think not. If evolution had its way beauty would be only that which is useful and promotes fitness and advantages. Yet, there is beauty in a grandmothers touch (see post below), there is beauty in altruism and self-sacrifice (something evolution would not promote) and there is even beauty amongst the despair of this world. That beauty comes in the form of Jesus Christ, not as a physically beautiful man, but as a Beautiful Hope.

    It has taken me all this time to just say the most beautiful thing to me, and what I think about when I think about beauty, is Jesus' sacrifice on the cross for the forgiveness of sins. What could be more beautiful than a loving God saving an evil people from torment and destruction? What could be more beautiful than a hope that keeps us going in the toughest and ugliest times? That is the Gospel message. And that is beauty.

    "Character is what you are when no one is looking."  I don't know who said this, but it resonates with me.  When someone makes the choice to be noble, it rings beautiful to me for quite some time.

    For me I see beauty in nature as well, it's simple things like laying sitting on the porch at night looking at the stars or even hearing a nice melody. Beauty is something that just is...if that makes sense.

    As an Graphic Art major, I tend to see beauty the most in HTML/CSS format, which most people can surely appreciate as well. smile

    When I hear the word beauty, I tend to think of (and yes it's cliche' but it's true) my husband. To me he is more beautiful than any piece or music or painting, he stands alone in his own category.

    He's a work of art in himself, and to me that is beauty.

    Very good question by the way!
