Beauty is a form of Genius–is higher, indeed, than Genius, as it needs no explanation. It is one of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in the dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. It has divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it.
1. Megan Fox
It is better to be beautiful than to be good, but it is better to be good than to be ugly.
The only way to behave to a woman is to make love to her if she is pretty and to someone else if she is plain.
2. Monica Bellucci
It is a beautiful woman’s fate to be the subject of conversation where ever she goes.
Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attractiveness of others.
3. Dominique Swain (Lolita)
You will see the girl to whom I am going to give all my life, to whom I have given everything that is good in me.
Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty.
4. Nicole Kidman
I like men who have a future and women who have a past.
A man’s face is his autobiography. A woman’s face is her work of fiction.
5. Charlize Theron
Crying is for plain women. Pretty women go shopping.
She is very clever, too clever for a woman. She lacks the indefinable charm of weakness. It is the feet of clay that make the gold of the image precious. Her feet are very pretty, but they are not feet of clay. White porcelain feet, if you like. They have been through the fire, and what fire does not destroy, it hardens. She has had experiences.
6. Sherilyn Fenn
Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic.
He has certainly not been paying me compliments. Perhaps that is the reason that I don’t believe anything he has told me.
7. Jessica Stroup
The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me.
And unselfish people are colourless. They lack individuality.
8. Krysten Ritter
I am sick of women who love one. Women who hate one are much more interesting.
In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.
