Those that can impress and opposite sex.
Those that are either rather or through great efforts.

Some more?

RE: What is beauty?
Many people define beauty as to what their culture says what beauty is. Beauty comes in many different forms. Beauty as used in most common term is outward appearance, particularly in women. But beauty can also be mountains, rivers etc. Some people, though may not be pretty, may have a beautiful soul. What is beauty? There are so many answers, this word is very flexible. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.... We have all heard this one. Beauty is knowledge, love, understanding, acceptance....

Beauty is relative, of course.

For instance, I happen to think this is quite beautiful:

And yet I doubt many here would have a 24x36 of it framed in their living room - as I do.

RE: What is beauty?
Beauty is anything that inspires a pleasant sensation within you!! A woman causes you to become sexually aroused then she looks beautiful, or smells beautiful, or feels beautiful, ... or even tastes beautiful Wink. A song causes a special happy memory to pop into your head, it's beautiful! The first time you lay your eyes on the Grand Canyon, and it literally takes your breath away in AWE, it's beautiful. So I would say a shot in the arm at the doctors isn't beautiful, BUT...remember...no one else in the world has to agree with you to make it pretty for you, nor are they obligated to!! Just enjoy it Smile

I think beauty comes from something or someone that elicits fond/kind/warm memories in some way or from.....or the golden ratio. One of the two

RE: What is beauty?
I finds words as inadequate and blunt tools in describing the beautiful things in life.
It is after all "In the eye of the beholder"

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.
