Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

‘Beauty,’  the dictionary tells us, ‘is a combination of qualities, as shape, proportion, colour, in human face of form, or in other objects, that delights the sight.’ The last four words are important. Beauty does not exist by itself; it exists only in the consciousness of those who see it. If anything delights the sight of one person, than it is beautiful to him; if the same things does not delight the sight of another person, than it is not beautiful to him.
