Does beauty exist? Given that nothing is perfect. If it does, what yardstick could be used to measure it?

A quite interesting topic. In my opinions, beauty can only exist in a comparison or it will be just a personal feeling or opinion on a object. It's hard to define beauty unless there is a popular definition.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.. The thing that is beautiful for one person may be not for the other... As far as measuring it is considered ,it is totally a subjective prerogative:-)

Hi emmy, welcome to mylot and have a happy stay here. Well, I think that beauty exist. You can see beautiful landscapes, beautiful sunrises or sunsets. But beauty is a different thing for each one. Beauty is a very personal thing. Have a nice day and welcome.

Hello! I don't beauty can be measured by some standard that is set forth..such as the "scale of 1 to 10". Beauty to you is measured differently than what I may view as beautiful. I see a sunset and think that it's breathtaking, you may see the same sunset as a reminder of time running out on things you need to get done and can't, therefore you may not see beauty but time constraints. You may see a place or a person as beautiful and I may not see that by your measuring tool. Not that I'd see them or whatever as ugly, just not beauty in my eyes. I think beauty exists in the heart and it exudes through the eyes, face, actions and all that a person is. In nature, it is as you see it. No, nothing is perfect, but perfection also is measured differently by all of us. Have a great day! Merry Christmas!
