Author: Joseph Conrad

You aren't supposed to notice a woman's nose.''Why not?''It's supposed to blend in, be part of the overall beauty of her well-proportioned face.''Yours is part of your overall beauty.'She made a face at him, complete with tongue stuck out."
Author: Judith Ivory
14. "Gorgeous, glowing rays of light...This was what true beauty and goodness looked like-- a spectral, luminescent gathering of beings so pure it hurt to look directly at them, like the most glorious eclipse, or maybe Heaven itself."

We must love the useless, because there is beauty in uselessness."
