People often say that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder,’ and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.
Salma Hayek


Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.
Edgar Allan Poe (1809 – 1849)

Beauty? Let me tell you something – being thought of as ‘a beautiful woman’ has spared me nothing in life. No heartache, no trouble. Love has been difficult. Beauty is essentially meaningless and it is always transitory.
Halle Berry

  2. i love the color of that photo!

  3. And I love the quotes too. Seems so logical and natural, yet, like a scratched record, I find my self singing beautifully and the next moment falling back into the same old groove again and again.
