True Beauty Comes From Within

"For beautiful eyes,
look for the good in others;
For beautiful lips,
... speak only words of kindness;
and for poise,
walk with the knowledge that
-Audrey Hepburn-

This quote reminded me of a saying I heard a lot growing up "True beauty comes from within."  "It doesn't matter what's on the outside, it's the inside that counts."

Have you heard those sayings before?  If you want others to think you are beautiful you need to show them that you are beautiful by your actions, not by having the perfect made up face.  You can be flawlessly beautiful on the outside, but if you are eaten up with hate within people are not going to think of you when they think of beauty.  They are going to think of the nice person who stopped to help them when everyone else teased, the boy who helped them when they were pushed down.

I'm not sure why, but when a friend posted this on her facebook wall today I knew I had to share it.  I hope somebody gets something out of this quote.  I truly believe that if we improve ourselves within our outward presence will reflect this.  If you are beautiful within it will radiate from you. Pin It Now!
