Beauty

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

-Margaret Wolfe Hungerford (1850 – 1897)

Irish Novelist

Have you ever seen a child that could not be thought to be beautiful?

It’s more amazing to see children grow up to look so much different than anyone could imagine. It is possible that the true beauty in children stems from their innocence and total acceptance of the world around them.

When allowed to their own devices children from all over the world find pleasure in an empty box or can. They can amuse themselves endlessly with a rubber band or a piece of string. They are innately curious about everything around them from the very first step they take.

The true gift is to appreciate these children in their youth and provide them with the endless support towards their pursuits no matter how curious we might find them. It is not up to anyone to judge children, but it is up to each and every adult to supply every child who crosses our path with unlimited support and avenues to pursue their dreams.

It is the children of the world who will become our future leaders and the type of leaders we create are totally dependent on the environment we create for them as children.

The beauty is more that they are a work of art and will be revealed right before our eyes.

Attraction

In my sex fantasy, nobody ever loves me for my mind.

– Nora Ephro (1941)

American Journalist

When it comes to sex, I still think of myself as a young woman. I was often pursued, but rarely noticed for my intelligence. I have to say it’s a rare man indeed who has the capacity to be attracted to a woman sexually because of her wit and intelligence.

It is far more typical to be attracted to another because of their physical beauty.  I am guilty of falling many times for a man’s exterior impression and I’m sure that is human nature.

But the most gratifying relationships I have ever had has been the one time where I did not notice his physical attributes because I was so enamored by his sparkling personality. Even years later I think with great fondness how very fortunate I was to have had the experience as it was a similarly mutual attraction for each of us.
