So . . . I’m giving a talk in a few weeks on the topic of Beauty. The first section of the talk will be a discussion attempting to answer the question “What is Beauty?” To aid me in this I’d like to extend this question to the world at large. So, I’m asking all of you out there: what do you think beauty is?
Feel free to take your time or just give me the first thing that pops into your head, or even give me more than one idea if you want. This is totally open. Leave a comment. Email me. Facebook me. Whatever you want.
Or, leave a joke if you want – but only if it’s a good one. Here’s the dictionary definition for “Beauty” to get you started thinking:
the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).
So, that’s what Dictionary.com thinks. What do you think Beauty is?
