Beauty Quotes

Having a series of motivational beauty quotes scattered around your house can be a great way of making sure you give yourself a reality check in hard times and that you’re following your simple beauty regime in the good times. Written on post it notes and place around every mirror, simple postcards in the rooms you spend the most time or written in a book these will give you a boost when you need it.


Inner Beauty

One of the biggest misconceptions about human beauty is that only other people can judge your attractiveness. Of course, a random stranger on the street may make a judgment about you solely based on your looks, but the truth about beauty is that your inner beauty will always impress the people whose opinions count. Some days this can be hard to remember, so you should have a selection of these beauty quotes to boost your self-esteem:

  • 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 – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
  • Sometimes people are beautiful.
    Not in looks.
    Not in what they say.
    Just in what they are. - Markus Zusak
  • There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through, something unexplainable, that's beautiful to me – Liv Tyler

Inner beauty is more about your attitudes, your friendships and how you approach difficult situations. Unlike physical beauty with which people are born, inner beauty is available to everyone and is something that needs work every day. However, it is something that people will notice when they talk to you and you’ll get much more of a boost from the close friendships you’ll build than the kind comments about your looks.

Global Beauty

Another big part of self-improvement is lifting your vision beyond your day-to-day problems and seeing the bigger picture of the world around you. Once you realize what an amazing place the world is and the unique position you occupy in that world, you can gain a lot of strength and motivation to make the most of your life.

Having beauty quotes that make you stop and think about the world surrounding you on a daily basis will help you keep your horizons open:

  • Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy – Anne Frank
  • Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it – Confucius
  • We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open. – Jawaharlal Nehru

You can use these beauty quotes to set yourself challenges to find something beautiful each day in the world around you. You could set up a photo album to record these, write about them or just store them as memories to motivate you at other times.

Reality Checks

In today’s celebrity culture, it can be easy to get caught up in the quest to look beautiful, to be model thin and to have luxurious hair. The constant stream of advertising ruins our self-esteem as we see these perfect faces and bodies and compare them to our own. Some renowned beauties have their own philosophy regarding the truth about beauty such as:

  • I don't mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can't be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won't like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it's based on femininity – Marilyn Monroe
  • There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness. – Maria Mitchell
  • Real beauty is to be true to oneself. That's what makes me feel good - Laetitia Casta

To give yourself a reality check and realize that you are beautiful, try putting some of these beauty quotes next to the mirror to stop your self-doubts before they start.
