If you took the time to analyze each person you encountered, touch every blade of grass you walked upon, or reenact every event you possess in your memory, then you would successfully know what beauty was. A pretty face is not a complete definition of beauty, nor is the quality of one being kind and compassionate. To contain beauty, someone or something doesn’t have to physically be beautiful. Beauty is everywhere.
Take a simple flower. Your first glance at a flower would not establish it’s beauty. You look at its whole appearance; the color(s), structure, scent, design, and even ponder for awhile about it’s growth process. All of these observations of a flower lead to its defining beauty. Now take a simple person and relate it to a flower. In many cases a person is defined to be beautiful by one thing; the physical appearance. But think about it…Would you think a flower was still beautiful if it’s smell was outrageously disgusting? The color of the flower is like the personality of a person. The structure, is like one’s confidence and impact upon others, the scent, is like someone’s over all aura, the design but one’s individualism, and a flowers growth process is merely like an individuals over all history. If all of these qualities are needed to make a flower beautiful, then why not a person as well?
Beauty is more than just a word to define someone or something. As Webster says :beauty is the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit. However if you think about this deeper, is beauty just a quality in a person or thing? Or can beauty be something overlooked and abstract? Can situations be considered beautiful? What about conversations, memories, or even life in general? The feeling of seeing two young people in love is beautiful. A brush stroke in an insignificant painting can be beautiful. Even the tiniest pebble lost in a sea of other rocks and boulders can simply define beauty to some people. Beauty is how you see it. There is beauty in the tears of a new mother who had just given birth to a child. There is beauty in the emotions expressed by high school friends as they depart to begin new lives.

When you search beyond the mainstream meaning of a word or quality, you begin to look at everything in a new way. Beauty isn’t as rare or superficial as you may have once thought. By discovering the beauty in even the smallest, meaningless thing, beauty then transforms into a more definite quality. This resulting in a definition with depth and thought.
