“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”
I agree that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder because beauty comes from within your soul. People have different ideas and tastes, so ideas on what is beautiful vary from person to person. This is proven when you look around in the world which we all share.
There are countless ways in which beauty is shown to us all. It could be in nature, like the waterfalls or the sunset or even a hurricane; some people may think that it’s exotic to see the skies fierce and dark. It all depends on who you are and what you believe in. For example, imagine a girl and a guy sitting on a dock by the sea, their hands entwined with each other but they are both looking in different directions. The girl is staring straight ahead watching the sunset. In her eyes it’s one of the most beautiful moments in the world. The guy, however, is looking at the girls’ face while she is in awe by the sight before her eyes. Her skin is as soft as silk, her lips full and tender and her vibrant red hair is dancing gently with the wind. In his eyes she is the most beautiful sight in the world.
Beauty could also be found in everyday objects. It could be the car one owns, or the pool in ones backyard, or even the quilts in a bedroom. For example imagine a husband and wife cleaning their attic. They go through all their old stuff to decide what to keep and what should be thrown away. The wife stumbles upon an antique plate; it’s full of cracks and the colors have faded away. But, to her this plate is a treasure and the beauty of it is in how ancient it is. She wants to keep it but her husband frowns and disagrees, he can’t understand why she would want that old piece of junk around. In his eyes the plate is old, cracked and ugly. He doesn’t see the beauty his wife found in it. Suddenly his eyes caught something shining from the moonlight that found its way in through some small crack in the ceiling. It was a hammer he forgot in the attic years ago. He grabbed it like a child would grab a lollipop; his eyes glowed with excitement like a child would at a sight of a new toy. He showed it to his wife who just shrugged him off. To her it was just another one of his collection of tools.
The quote “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” may confuse some people to think that blind people can’t see beauty because their eyes only sees darkness. That is so untrue. You don’t need eyes to see beauty, because beauty is found in the soul of a person. For example, if a person has a bad soul then he/she wouldn’t see beauty even with eyes. The blind may not be able to see all the different forms...
