Inner/Outer Beauty per "The Faces of Illusions"

Talila on 'beauty' - " Outter beauty fades... Inner beauty is everlasting. Perhaps the best advice I've ever received. Society makes it more difficult to recognize true beauty. There is a tendency to focus on the perceived beauty due to facial features, or skin tone, or body structure, etc. I would argue though, that the ability to harness one's inner beauty and to have it show forth externally is the true definition of beauty. Hellen Keller says it best, "The most beautiful things in the world can not be seen, nor touched, but are felt in the heart."

Isabel on 'beauty' - " I feel the most beautiful when a person looks me right in my eyes and smiles. Someone once told me that I was the most beautiful woman in the world, but then they told me that when they look into my eyes they can see the spiritual me and it's even more beautiful. They said that they see beyond the physical because it will fade away one day.
