Plastic surgery is about good health and it’s about beauty. Beauty is hard to define, but we usually know it when we see it. I think a good way to examine the question of what beauty is, is to look at some thoughts on the subject from the minds of great writers of the past. Let’s start with a line from Ralph Ellison’s novel, Invisible Man.
“Had the price of looking been blindness, I would have looked.”
This is a good indication beauty is present and a fairly accurate description of the behavior of most men. If this were a real thing that happened, all men would be blind.
Next, we have a Chinese proverb. These are always good.
“When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.”
Beauty is very important, even if you’re starving. It inspires, provides hope and gives something to live for. Having beauty around enriches our lives. It’s a great investment and the Chinese have apparently known this for centuries.
Our next quote is from Oscar Wilde, legendary Irish poet and playwright.
“It is better to be beautiful than to be good, but it is better to be good than to be ugly.”
Honestly, I’m not sure what this means. Oscar was an odd guy, but he was probably on to something. If you have an idea of what he’s talking about, leave your comment down below.
The final quote is by Karl Kraus, an Austrian writer, playwright, thinker and poet.
“A woman who cannot be ugly is not beautiful.”
This is an interesting idea. But is it true? Tell me what you guys think down below. I’m interested to hear your opinions, and feel free to share your favorite quotations in the comments.
