It is human nature that all of us should be fond of beauty. Everybodywas born with a heart for beauty.
Beauty (also called prettiness, loveliness or comeliness) is a characteristic of a person, animal, place,object, or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure, meaning, or satisfaction.Beauty is studied as part of aesthetics, sociology, social psychology, and culture. An "ideal beauty" is an entity which is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture, for perfection.
The experience of "beauty" often involves the interpretation of some entity as being in balance and harmony withnature, which may lead to feelings of attraction and emotional well-being. Because this is asubjective experience, it is often said that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."In its most profound sense, beauty may engender a salient experience of positive reflection about the meaning of one's ownexistence.A subject of beauty is anything that resonates with personal meaning.
it seems to me, all these are more or less confined to the beauty in appearance, or rather, the outward beauty.
Personally,we shouldn't on
Here, I'd like to quote two typical instances and I'm sure, my dear friends,from them you'll find out what real beauty is.
Recently I learned from the radio an unpleasant incident about a wellknown singer. She is very charming with a sweet beautiful voice and very famous for singing the song."Devotion of Love". Not long ago,she was invited to Zhejiang Province to give performance. The moment she was to appear on the stage,she suddenly asked for more reward. Worse still,after her request was satisfied, she didn't begin to sing at on
How disappointed her keen listeners were when they learned this! It is the singer herself who spoiled her beautiful image in the eyes of others.
Now, I'm coming to another true story. It's about a poor, ordinary looking old woman. She was a widow without any children, living barely from hand to mouth by picking odds and ends from rubbish heaps. However,she took in more than ten homeless orphans successively and managed to bring them up. Every day she labored from morning till night. In order to earn as much money as possible to raise the children and to keep them in school,she even went to a hospital regularly to sell her blood. She got so weak for the loss of blood that she sometimes fell in a faint on her way home.
When asked why she chose to burden herself with so many children,she smiled and simply answered,"Oh,I love children and I like to have their company. "
Though the old woman was poor materially, she was full of affection and rich in spirit. She was loved dearly by her children. She was also highly appreciated by the local government, and truly respected by people in her community.
Maybe you can't help wondering, "What makes that ordinary woman so extraordinary?" It is nothing else but her inner beauty, her true devotion of love without any thought of rewarding. What a sharp contrast there is between the great woman and the selfish singer]
So,to answer the question "What is real beauty?", I declare definitely,it is the beauty lying in on
