As they grew sloppier and less alert, the twins argued too loudly about whether Tiger Lily was ugly or beautiful, and finally agreed that she was “ugly beautiful”.Tiger Lily pretended she hadn’t heard, but her heart slowed to absorb the blow.

She may resent Playboy because she resents feeling ugly in sex–or, if “beautiful,” her body defined and diminished by pornography. It inhibits in her something she needs to live, and gives her the ultimate anaphrodisiac: the self-critical sexual gaze. Alice Walker’s essay “Coming Apart” investigates the damage done: Comparing herself to her lover’s pornography, her heroine “foolishly” decides that she is not beautiful.

People only see in us the contemptible skirt-fever which rules our actions but completely miss the beauty-hunger underlying it.

If you fall in love because someone makes you laugh, what happens when you no longer find them funny? If you fall in love because someone is beautiful, what happens when that beauty fades? If you fall in love because someone can provide for you, what happens when they lose wealth? Real love defies all reasons. When you truly love someone, you do not look for reasons, you see beyond reasons.
~ Jefroy Hanson

A little girl loves her bird–Why? Because it lives and feels; because it is helpless and harmless? A toad, likewise, lives and feels, and is equally helpless and harmless; but though she would not hurt a toad, she cannot love it like the bird, with its graceful form, soft feathers, and bright, speaking eyes.
~ Anne Brontë
Every moment is beautiful; delicious even!

Beauty deprived of its proper foils and adjuncts ceases to be enjoyed as beauty, just forhimlovequotes.com as light deprived of all shadows ceases to be enjoyed as light.
~ John Ruskin
You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
~ Warsan Shire
To me a woman is not defined by how developed she is physically, but mentally.
~ Anette Sandberg
O! she doth teach the torches to burn bright It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop’s ear; Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.- Romeo –
~ William Shakespeare
I’m just happy to have experienced life; to have had a beautiful son and to have loved.
