The modern world has changed many things about our relationship. But the modern definition of beauty is one such aspect that has been extremely skewed.
Beauty has been seen throughout history as something that has extended to all types of art and literature but the current perception of beauty is still restricted to the physical. The physical standards for appearance, originating from pop culture and mass media, have become highly warped and one dimensional.
This is a concern because everyone needs to believe like they are good in some way and a significant number of people will feel bad about themselves when the expectations are too difficult to keep up with. That’s why, every time an idea like beauty gets distorted, it’s important to take a look back at what it really means. So check out these beauty quotes to boost your self-esteem and now see your own beauty.

“Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty.”David Hume

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”Ashley Smith

Beauty is to some degree subjective, and it’s important that we don’t take everyone else’s opinion at face value. We should look to discover what we find truly beautiful, whether that be in art, in people, or in nature.
“Beauty can be consoling, disturbing, sacred, profane; it can be exhilarating, appealing, inspiring, chilling. It can affect us in an unlimited variety of ways.

If there are people who are indifferent to beauty, then it is surely because they do not perceive it.”Roger Scruton
