It comes from an old persian saying. It is still used today when a person is complimented like ';you look beautiful'; and a reply would be ';Thank you, your eyes are(see) beautiful'; basically implying that beauty is the the eye of the one who sees it.Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Who is credited for this quote?

It's a very old proverb, so I'm not sure it can be directly credited. I would highly suggest reading this short information site on it:)

Not sure but I am sure I got 2 points for answering this question!!
