Quotable Sunday #4

****Please check out, enter, and tell all you know about my first ever Giveaway! ****

Tomorrow I will be hosting a jewelry giveaway, so I thought I would focus today's Quotable Sunday on beauty to lead into tomorrow's Valentine's Swap. I had to add in quotes from a few of my favourite scientists.

"I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may - light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful."
John Constable

"The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason."
John Cage

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting
.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are as many kinds of beauty as there are habitual ways of seeking happiness.”
Charles Baudelaire

"There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion."
Sir Francis Bacon

For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.
Ivan Panin

"When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong."
R. Buckminster Fuller
