Whoever came up with this beauty-is-in-the-eye-of-the-be鈥?crap?

Guy's who could never trap a decent bird!Whoever came up with this beauty-is-in-the-eye-of-the-be鈥?crap?
I think it is meant to be the beauty within a person that is seen, not so much their looks.Whoever came up with this beauty-is-in-the-eye-of-the-be鈥?crap?

it's supposed to mean that we each have our own idea of what we consider beautiful.
someone ugly. Beauty is a science (according to Einstein) not society their is reason why your eyes is attracted to something beautiful. Your brain receives signals that make you attracted to something over something else. Your more likely to sympathize for something your brain thinks is beautiful.
';Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.';

Is actually a paraphrase of a statement by Plato:

';Remember how in that communion only, beholding beauty with the eye of the mind, he will be enabled to bring forth, not images of beauty, but realities (for he has hold not of an image but of a reality), and bringing forth and nourishing true virtue to become the friend of God and be immortal, if mortal man may.';

-Plato, Symposium
This saying first appeared in the 3rd century BC in Greek. It didn't appear in its current form in print until the 19th century, but in the meantime there were various written forms that expressed much the same thought. In 1588, the English dramatist John Lyly, in his Euphues and his England, wrote:

'; neere is Fancie to Beautie, as the pricke to the Rose, as the stalke to the rynde, as the earth to the roote.';

Shakespeare expressed a similar sentiment in Love's Labours Lost, 1588:

Good Lord Boyet, my beauty, though but mean,

Needs not the painted flourish of your praise:

Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye,

Not utter'd by base sale of chapmen's tongues

Benjamin Franklin, in Poor Richard's Almanack, 1741, wrote:

Beauty, like supreme dominion

Is but supported by opinion

David Hume's Essays, Moral and Political, 1742, include:

';Beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them.';

The person who is widely credited with coining the saying in its current form is Margaret Wolfe Hungerford (n茅e Hamilton), who wrote many books, often under the pseudonym of 'The Duchess'. In Molly Bawn, 1878, there's the line ';Beauty is in the eye of the beholder';, which is the earliest citation of it that I can find in print.

And it's not crap. It's truth in human nature. People should realize this and worry about being who they are instead of wasting their life trying to be something they are not.

Cheers :-)
It is actually true. Some things are not beautiful at all that is true. But some things that people think are beautiful are hideous to me like Anna Nicole Smith. I think the older you get you will realize this.
An ugly person said it first.
You should be glad because you'd be ugly to everyone otherwise.
lol some one so ugly they had to say that to make them selfs feel better !
