Happy Monday (Tuesday?) Quotes #22: Beauty

The holidays put me a bit behind on my “Happy Monday” quotes, but I didn’t want to let another week slip away, so here are some for your Tuesday.

I had quite a few ideas for quote topics today, but I decided to go with “beauty.” I have been noticing a lot of beautiful moments in my life lately — sometimes small, sometimes huge, overwhelming and all-encompassing. But all of them add depth and richness to my existence, make me aware I am human and incredibly fortunate to have thoughts, eyes, blood, skin, nerve endings and emotions.

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” — Anne Frank

“There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.” — Edgar Allan Poe (from Ligeia)

“As if you were on fire from within./The moon lives in the lining of your skin.” — Pablo Neruda (from “Ode to a Naked Beauty”)

“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” — Marcus Aurelius (from Meditations)
