What is beauty?

Just a few thoughts. This doesn't encompass the word or label by any means.

Do you love me because I'm beautiful, or am I am beautiful because you love me?
Oscar Hammerstein, II

Sex appeal is fifty percent what you've got and fifty percent what people think you've got.
Sophia Loren

A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
John Keats

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
Kahlil Gibran
"A thing of beauty is a joy forever."

I think that this is one of those things that I understand differently depending on my state.

"How can anything last forever?" some part of me asks, but another part knows that forever is in a moment. It interesting to see both of these views at the same time.

Thanks for the quotes. Beauty is a worthy topic. I think that beauty is literally food for the Soul.
