The World is Beautiful

The world is beautiful...
If you don't believe it, let me proove it to you.
Don't you dare close your eyes...don't even blink...
See the beauty God gave us...


"Most of us have had moments in childhood when we touched the divine presence. We did not think it extraordinary because it wasn't; it was just a beautiful moment filled with love. In those simple moments our hearts were alive, and we saw the poignant beauty of life vividly with wonder and appreciation."
David McArthur and Bruce McArthur.


"Beauty seen is never lost, God's colors all are fast."
John Greenleaf Whittier


"It is not sufficient to see and to know the beauty of a work. We must feel and be affected by it."
Voltaire


"The real sin against life is to abuse and destroy beauty, even one's own—even more, one's own, for that has been put in our care and we are responsible for its well-being."
Katherine Anne Porter



"Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all."
W. Somerset Maugham


"Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old."
Franz Kafka


"A person is only beautiful, when their own beauty, is reflecting on to others."
Tara Grady



"There is nothing ugly; I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may, -- light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful."
John Constable



"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."
Ralph Waldo Emerson



"Beauty is an experience, nothing else. It is not a fixed pattern or an arrangement of features. It is something felt, a glow or a communicated sense of fineness. What ails us is that our sense of beauty is so bruised and blunted, we miss all the best."
D. H. Lawrence



"Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless; peacocks and lilies for instance."
John Ruskin


"Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart."
Khalil Gibran


"For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it."
Ivan Panin


"It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever."
Jimmy Carter


"Keep your faith in all beautiful things; in the sun when it is hidden, in the Spring when it is gone."
Roy R. Gilson


"A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


"People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within."
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross


"If eyes were made for seeing, then Beauty is it's own excuse for being."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


"A thing of beauty is a joy forever; its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness."
John Keats


"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open."
Jawaharlal Nehru


"There is certainly no absolute standard of beauty. That precisely is what makes its pursuit so interesting."
John Kenneth Galbraith


The world is really beautiful...don't you agree?
