Some quotes I found today while reading mail, FB entries and surfing the web.

"I firmly believe that beauty is its own reward and time spent seeing art needs no "practical" justification."   ~Hecatedemeter 
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."  ~Confucius 
"Love of beauty is taste.  The creation of beauty is art."  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson 
"Beauty is not caused.  It is."  ~Emily Dickinson 
"Beauty awakens the soul to act."  ~Dante Alighieri
"Beauty is whatever gives joy."  ~Edna St. Vincent Millay
"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 wellbeing." ~Katherine Anne Porter 
"When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other."  ~Chinese Proverb
"Warning: The reflections in this mirror may be distorted by socially constructed ideas of ‘beauty’." ~Unknown
