Her honesty gives a great relief to those who aspire to be as glamorous as her and  are not granted the wish. Despite her frankness, Cindy is supposed to be far above the average even waking up in a messy look .

    These two quotes are brief and concise, but they both show me that beauty isn’t only a thing you can see but also an inner feeling which you have to feel it by heart.

  18. “Beauty… when you look into a woman’s eyes and see what is in her heart.”
    ~ Nate Dircks

    That’s exactly right! From boys prespectives, beauty may be a model with slender waist or sapphire-like eyes. But what they don’t know is that inner beauty the most precious thing is in the world! As the old saying goes, “Don’t judge a book by its cover” , the deeper you know her, the more you find where her “real” beauty is.

    Beauty is being in harmony with what you are.
    Peter Nivio Zarlenga

    I deeply agreed with this quote because it reveals the real world, which is cruel, but true. It explains why people are having plastic surgery or being discontent with their appearance nowadays. They just don’t understand the definition of true beauty. Beauty isn’t a matter about one’s appearance . It is about our confidence in ourselves. If we do believe in ourselves and love ourselves, doubtlessly, we are beautiful.

  25. “The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart.”

    The reason why I like this quote is that the surface beauty is hard to maintain until you are old, but the internal beauty won’t disappear someday. When a person who has the internal beauty talks to you ,you may feel the happyness and satisfaction thoroughly.In contrast,the surface beauty seems to be nothing.

  26. “It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.”~Oscar Wilde

    Maybe beauty can catch your eyes, but it’s not the most important thing. I think personality is the most precious.

  27. “The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart.”
    It’s true that we cannot define a person by their looks. Only by getting along with he or she can we feel their beauty.

  28. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    It’s accepted that people are visual animals, while I believe one’s internal beauty is more important than his or hers appearance. I think an ugly but kind person is better than a beautiful but mean one.

  29. “Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart”
    I tkink we should not judge a book by its cover. One may have an ugly apperance , but he or she is actually a kind men. A beautiful woman might have an evil mind as well

  30. “Pretty is something you’re born with. But beautiful, that’s an equal opportunity adjective.”

    I think it that everyone has beautiful,and not just only apperance. I have a kind heart,and you have a wide eyes.However,what significant you have must has someone to like you.Beautiful is so fair that you are not disappointed about your apperence.Just keep a delight mood!

  31. “Beauty is not caused. It is.” ― Emily Dickinson
    Many people want to be beautiful on purpose. But I think the true beauty is what you really are. It doesn’t depend on your make-up, dresses or hairstyle.

  32. “The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart”─ Helen Keller
    Beauty is not a real thing that you can see by your eyes. It is hidden everywhere. The only why to find it is to feel it with your heart. Beauty is a feeling that come out from the bottom of your heart.

  33. Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
    -Confucius-
    I think that everything is beautiful, and all of us have our own personalities, but not everyone knows that. Most of us consider beauty as how you look. I hope that all of us can change this perspective.

  34. “Nature didn’t need an operation to be beautiful. It just was.”
    ― Scott Westerfeld, The Uglies Trilogy

    I think nature is more beautiful than any artificial things.

  35. Nice quote! Read over your comment again, and a little correction of some minor errors will make it better. Best luck, JO

  36. “What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.”
    ― Scott Westerfeld, Uglies
    The real beauty is not for who has good appearance, but the one has a heart of gold.

  37. “What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.” ― Scott Westerfeld

    It is as the same meaning as “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” ; you may change your appearance by surgeries, but you can’t change the way you talk nor the way others think of you. After improve yourself from heart, and knowledge, everything will change.

    “Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.”
    ― Frederick Buechner

    This is our world, where we lives for millions of years. I regard this quote as the best description to our world.

  38. “What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.”
    ― Scott Westerfeld, Uglies
    The real beauty is not for who has good appearance, but the one has a heart of gold.

  39. Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she’s beautiful but don’t have anything to talk about, it’s going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person.
    Amanda Peet
    The reason why I chose this quote is because I think that inner beauty is the most crucial factor to me. Even if someone has alluring appearance and captivating body shape, I won’t be attracted by her as long as she doesn’t have a very kind heart.

  40. It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.”

    What is important for a person is personality. If you are beautiful on face, get along with people evilly, others leave you in the end. But whatever you look, just have a beautiful heart; everyone will think that you are sincere. That is doubtless pretty.
