THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!




This is one of my favourite quote of Elizabeth Kubler Ross: so often we find beauty is interpreted with how one appears physically; often judged by the height, weight, color of the skin, shape of the eyes, nose, ears etc…..

The beauty queens of today are adored by the youngsters, who go head over heel wanting to look like their favourite heroines and the beauty models.

The cosmetics company is making great business in selling their products to help people look younger with anti ageing creams, suggesting them to buy soaps, powder and gels to keep their skin soft, supple and glowing.

Fitness experts and fitness centre’s are on rise promising people to help them get into shape, and the girls are going crazy wanting a zero figure, while the guys are working hard for 6pack looks.

I am not against these products or gym centre’s, I am afraid that these products and equipments must not start defining who we are; our beauty is beyond our physical appearance.

Each one of us are beautiful people; with unique set of talents and capacities, we must encourage our youth to be healthy and look at beauty from within.


May this quote inspire all of us to understand and interpret beauty in its true sense !

  1. Only if we understood the truth that "these products and equipments must not start defining who we are; our beauty is beyond our physical appearance." - half the esteem issues in young people would be resolved!

  2. Completely agree that, while it's okay, even good, to take care of one's physical attributes and looks, that does not define who one is.

    1. Absolutely ! when one does not get so obsessed that it starts affecting their self esteem.... its nice to dress up, and also take care of health by eating right and exercising daily.... the definition comes from who we are at the core and what we believe ...

  5. So true Angela :) Reminds me of one of my favorite lines from the book ,Dear God this is Anna. Most of a person is on the outside, most of the angel inside- something of this sort, am quoting from memory :)

  6. Beauty can be perceived in the kindness of others. You just have to look with the right eyes.

  8. Some of the most beautiful people I know are not 'comely' but just the opposite. On the other hand, some of the most 'beautiful' people I know can be the 'ugliest' inside and plastic on the outside.
