Beauty Displaying 11 through 12 of 12 Quotes

"Ugliness is in a way superior to beauty because it lasts."  (Serge Gainsbourg)

"Without beauty a girl is unhappy because she has missed her chance to be loved. People do not jeer at her, they are not cruel to her, but it is as if she were invisible, no eyes follow her as she walks. People feel uncomfortable when they are with her. They find it easier to ignore her. A girl who is exceptionally beautiful, on the other hand, who has something which too far surpasses the customary seductive freshness of adolescence, appears somehow unreal. Great beauty seems invariably to portend some tragic fate."  (Michel Houellebecq, Les particules elémentaires)
