2014 SAID……………….

This is a list of my Top Quotes of the Year 2014.

Some were gotten from books that I read while some were gotten from Tv or I just stumbled across it somewhere and can’t remember. I picked these ones because I felt that i could, on some level, relate to them.

Beauty – WHO IS JUDGE?

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.


So the very popular saying goes. And yes, it is correct; beauty is contingent on a subjective point of view. There is no universally accepted standard by which the word “beauty” should be used to describe someone, so I will only be giving my subjective point of view after which I will be dropping a few quotes from people all with their own subjective point of view.

First, let me get something out of the way; while inner beauty is good and all, let us not deceive ourselves and say it is what actually attracted us to a person in the first place. That being said, I believe beauty should not be used only in the context of a person’s physical features, others things like the way they act and the way they talk or laugh or in what they o can and should be described using the world beautiful.

Apart from a person’s physical features, I find the following attributes as beautiful; intelligence, sense of humor, smile, way of seeing things (perspective), and many more that I cannot readily say now.


“Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.”
Markus Zusak

“That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me,
that people want to be around someone because they’re pretty.
It’s like picking your breakfeast cereals based on color instead of taste.”
John Green

“What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.”
Scott Westerfeld

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat,
known suffering, known struggle, known loss,
and have found their way out of the depths.
These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity,
and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness,
and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

“The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.”
P.C. Cast

“Do I love you because you’re beautiful,
or are you beautiful because I love you?”
Richard Rodgers

“But even though she was attractive,
there was something else about her that caught his eye.
She was intelligent, he could sense that right away, and confident, too,
as if she were able to move through life on her own terms.
To him, these were the things that really mattered.
Without them, beauty was nothing.”
Nicholas Sparks

“Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin.
It’s about knowing and accepting who you are.”
Ellen DeGeneres

“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions;
and thus we see magic and beauty in them,
while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.”
Khalil Gibran

True Humor Quotes

I love reading quotes on Goodreads. Mainly because it gives me snippets of an author’s words so I know which to get or read. But also because the quotes sometimes carry deeper meanings which are relatable.
