That’s why, whenever a concept like beauty becomes twisted, it’s critical to reconsider what it really means. So have a look at these beauty quotes to raise your self-esteem and recognize your own beauty now.

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together.___Carl Sagan
I think that when you consider the beauty of the world and you wonder how it came to be what it is, you are naturally overwhelmed with a feeling of awe, a feeling of admiration and you almost feel a desire to worship something. I feel this, I recognize that other scientists such as Carl Sagan feel this, Einstein felt it. We, all of us, share a kind of religious reverence for the beauties of the universe, for the complexity of life. For the sheer magnitude of the cosmos, the sheer magnitude of geological time. And it’s tempting to translate that feeling of awe and worship into a desire to worship some particular thing, a person, an agent. You want to attribute it to a maker, to a creator. What science has now achieved is an emancipation from that impulse to attribute these things to a creator.___Richard Dawkins
