True Beauty Quotations
May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night. May the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
My mother sat me down and said, ...you are beautiful to me but must know that you are beautiful for yourself. You should also be aware that true beauty is in the eye of the beholder, which means that how beautiful you are to other people is always going to be subjective to who is looking at you at that time, and since you will always be looking at yourself first, you should find your own beauty and feel good about who you are.” She went on to tell me that I needed to take the time to identify those things that I found to be beautiful about myself but also celebrate what I thought was weird or unusual because those were the special things that God had given to me that made me different from everybody else. I learned how to appreciate, embrace, and enhance those special things so that they would shine rather than be hidden...We learned to love and identify with what made us uniquely beautiful.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
Thich Nhat Hanh
The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.
Dr. Thomas Fuller
Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him.

There is something particularly clever, and indefinable about your campaign. I love that it does not associate good values with a religion, but promotes goodness as a basic human value. Keep up the good work, we're listening and, hopefully, acting on what you propose.
I thought that this value is amazing because true beauty defines yourself.

A beautiful heart is a reflection of a beautiful mind.
Pacific Enga, The Valley
Real beauty will be found on our heart ♥♥♥
Beauty is only skin deep means that being beautiful only counts on your physical appearance, which clearly isn't true. Beauty not only is what's on the outside but is what is on the inside as well.
I was always told growing up beauty is as beauty does, so I firmly stand by that...beauty comes from within..if you have a pretty face but not a pretty attitude and not a pretty personality in my eyes youu are not that pretty . It makes me sad to know that some people are like this their whole lives . Struggle to have what everyone else has..just be yourself and u will be standing out from the crowd!!

True beauty, for me, is unwavering sincerity in all that one does.
True beauty to me means: embracing your differences and loving the uniqueness that these differences bring to who you are!
