Is beauty in the eye of the beholder or the beheld?

what do you see in the mirror?

do you see beauty reflected?

are you the beheld...or the beholder...

true beauty comes from within...

Everything that is beautiful and noble is the product of reason and calculation.

鈥擟harles Baudelaire, 1869

in L'Art RomantiqueIs beauty in the eye of the beholder or the beheld?
Beauty is only able to beheld if one knows what true beauty is. Do you know what true beauty is? If you do then you are able to behold it and it holds you. Report Abuse
Is beauty in the eye of the beholder or the beheld?
depends on who is the beholder and the beholdee Report Abuse

This was a good question

and a truly (note spelling)

beautiful answer. Report Abuse

Both. Something is there in the object (beheld) and something is there in the subject (beholder).
True beauty knows itself but does not begrudge those who do not know it. The answer is both, but without ego, without vanity, and, strangely, without shame.
Beauty isnt intrinsic. It is always a product of societal standards. Compare beauty standards between some tribes in africa and those of your own society. As the concept of beauty differs between societies, so it does between individuals--the beholders. Beauty has nothing to do with the beheld.
It's in the eye of the beholder. The beheld is the person being looked at, and quite often even a handsome or beautiful person doesnt think they are as attractive as the person who is looking at them thinks.
both...because you have to feel beautiful to be beautiful
Beholder, for if the beheld sees beauty, it is still in the eye of the beholder!

Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.

An individual should look past the superficial exterior of another, and see the true beauty in the heart, the soul (assuming it is there, of course :-) ), and not get so hung up on exterior looks alone, which can be very misleading.
i dont know..... both?
I think beauty in eye is beheld ...

One can say that beheld the beauty in his/her eyes ...
Both. But since we generally unconsciously depend on others to rate how we look, it's in the eyes of the beholder.
both we chose our beauty and others chose our beauty
