I was inspired to write a page of beauty quotes because I have always loved the written and spoken word. Words and language are beautiful to me...when used with humility and for goodness.
Therefore, I love quotes and the wisdom (and sometimes humor) they impart to the willing and open mind and heart. Below is a collection of my favorite quotes about inner beauty and outer beauty.
You will find other beauty quotes throughout this site, like my all-time favorite
beautiful quote by Sam Levenson
made famous by Audrey Hepburn and some of my most-loved beauty

If you have any beauty quotes to share, I would definitely love to hear them!
