"Order is the shape upon which beauty depends."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."Pearl S. Buck on Confucius
"To love beauty is to see light."Pearl S. Buck 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."Pearl S. Buck on Amanda Peet
"A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears."Pearl S. Buck 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."Pearl S. Buck on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"We should so provide for old age that it may have no urgent wants of this world to absorb it from meditation on the next. It is awful to see the lean hands of dotage making a coffer of the grave."
"You can judge your age by the amount of pain you feel when you come in contact with a new idea."
"Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that is where I renew my springs that never dry up."
"The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration."
"Love alone could waken love."
