"Beauty attracts us men but if, like an armed magnet it is pointed, beside, with gold and silver, it attracts with tenfold power."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Jean Paul on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Jean Paul 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."Jean Paul on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Jean Paul 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."Jean Paul on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"What makes old age so sad is not that our joys but our hopes cease."
"As winter strips the leaves from around us, so that we may see the distant regions they formerly concealed, so old age takes away our enjoyments only to enlarge the prospect of the coming eternity."
"Age does not matter if the matter does not age."
"Live your life and forget your age."
"Whenever, at a party, I have been in the mood to study fools, I have always looked for a great beauty: they always gather round her like flies around a fruit stall."
