Here are some "beautiful" words of wisdom from people of the past:
"Beauty is not in the face;
beauty is a light in the heart."
~Khalil Gibran, (1883 - 1931)
"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
"A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"People are like stained glass windows:
they sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in their true beauty
is revealed only if there is a light within."
"Remember how in that communion only,
beholding beauty with the eye of the mind,
he will be enabled to bring forth, not images of beauty,
but realities (for he has hold not of an image but of a reality),
and bringing forth and nourishing true virtue to become
the friend of God and be immortal, if mortal man may."
