Inner Beauty Challenge.

“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:

Its loveliness increases; it will never

Pass into nothingness; but still will keep

A bower quiet for us, and a sleep

Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.”

 

The first 5 lines from Endymion, by English poet John Keats.

Dad from bereavedsingledad.blog has opened up a challenge from Rory (aguycalledbloke.blog) on the topic of Inner Beauty.

You get to post two quotes on the topic. John Keats (above) is my first and my second is:

“Inner Beauty, unlike external beauty, cannot be photographed or painted on a canvas.

It is ‘seen’ through the prism of Time; it reveals itself slowly and not in a sudden showy flash, showing itself in what it does and what it stays constant in throughout many different situations, trials even. It is what remains when the first freshly opened petals have long since blown away.”

    • There is much demand for it – it’s a universal thing! 🙂

      Like love though, there are different kinds… and, as you put it, … for some it may depend upon whose eyes are doing the looking as to what they consider to be beautiful. 🙂

      Some people in seeking to make themselves ‘more’ beautiful manage to do the opposite. 😦
