Beauty is subjective and can mean many things to many people. For me, beauty is someone that exudes good character, a gentle and kind spirit and makes a difference in those lives they touch. They leave a footprint wherever they go. For some, beauty is seen only in the aesthetics and they completely bypass what's on the inside, which may be quite ugly. My belief is that if there's true beauty within, it cannot be hidden. It will shine no matter what the packaging looks like. On the flip side, no matter how beautiful the packaging is, if there's ugliness within, it will show eventually.

IT IS SAID THAT BEAUTY IS ALWAYS IN SEER'S EYES! THIS IS REALLY FACT THAT WE CONSIDER OR ADMIRE BEAUTY BY OUR OWN NORMS OR OUR OWN EXPERIENCE BASED OPINION! The real meaning of beauty is so lucid that one can feel but can't name it or title it or can not give any ready made defination!

well that is ture sometimes when people like someone they boast of what the person is but when it comes to we looking at the person it is not the same on how you look at it. but when a relationship is broken that is the time you will hear your friend saying that guy is mannerless and a ugly person. funny but it is true, we do crazy things when we are in love and we are blind as well.

it depends on each person, how he or she defines beauty aas, in my view a person who is well mannered and has good looks, wears clothes suiting his tyle is beautiful

Beauty is definitely in the eyes of the beholder, Iwas always told I went for ugly men but they were beautiful to me, I fine beauty in the eyes and a character face, male model looks do nothing for me. I read once that people in actual fact without really knowing it get attracted to a persons faults...it is good that everyone sees beauty in different ways...
