"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Herbert Gold on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Herbert Gold on Victor Hugo
"Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person."Herbert Gold on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Herbert Gold on Anne Roiphe
"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."Herbert Gold on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
