Women that don’t have size six waists or smaller often feel insecure about them, and have low self-esteem. Men who aren’t six feet tall with a perfect body frequently suffer from low self-esteem. Men and women that do have the perfect body are considered beautiful and are worshiped. A perfect example of this kind of man is Chris Hemsworth. People who only care about external beauty called are superficial. Sometimes beauty is only skin deep. There are some people that have a calm, loving heart and they are called beautiful.

...Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen, for the next few minutes I will share with you my perspective about beauty. I have a quote, which did not only capture my mind, but also captured my heart. Helen Keller said: “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.” She is American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree she was blind. You might be wondering why I have decided to talk to you about this quote, but instead of me just telling you, I will take you to a journey that might place you in my position. Let me ask you this, with a raise of hands how many of you would like to live in a house like this? Well, it is a common goal in today’s fast-paced society to achieve monetary wellness in order to live what some people call “the good life”. In this house you have the latest technology and a crew of people that are more than willing to take care of all of your needs. Now, picture yourself in this house. It certainly does not compare, right? So what is my point? Why am I showing these pictures? Well what you do not know is that in the second picture lives an aged couple who had been married for over 20 years. They had lived together the toughest years of their lives in that simple house. They had seen their daughter grow, they saw how she would fail, but they also had the opportunity to see her achieve all of her goals. Now if you show...

... wear something that covered my bags. When I received my first pair of glasses, no one could tell me anything. I had my head held high and was a new girl. When I went back to school, the kids were whispering and staring but now it was something good. I no longer sat in the back of the classroom; I was in the front answering all the questions making sure that everyone saw me. “You did not change,” they say.” (par31) This statement stood out the most to me in this essay. No one had to tell me these words because I told myself this every day, even now. I do not need glasses to be what society call “beautiful or glamorous” (par31). My dark circles made me different and I think people are afraid of that word, Walkers essay teaches me that. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and I think that is what Walker means to say in the essay. “She is beautiful, whole and free. And she is also me.” At the end of the essay Walker too realizes that I really doesn’t matter that her eye is different from everyone else, that’s she was stunning all alone she just had to raise her head and look in the mirror....

Many people have a different definition of beauty whether it is appearance, their personality or the work they have done. Looking into celebrity culture, people follow it to help them feel beautiful or use celebrities as motivation. Celebrities are our role models and we try to follow them in the latest fashion like clothing, hair, make-up and acting. Teens especially want an iconic person to look up to and follow them for their selflessness deeds and actions. Celebrities like Tyra Banks, Oprah Winfrey, and Queen Latifah are example of iconic celebrities that many people look up to and try to mimic in order to feel self-fulfilled. Celebrity culture does help define our view of beauty for men and women worldwide. The celebrity culture is in our lives every day, people try to copy them in any way possible because they are they’re our role models. Tyra Banks is an exceptional model that has been through many difficulties as an African American model. She faced racism as a child when she first began her modeling career.

...Connie was an average teenage girl who wanted more attention from the society than needed. She knew the ugly truth of getting old and disappearance of the youthful beauty that she had now. Also she knew that she was pretty and now is the time to be free and careless and enjoy the life of being pretty and young. Her world of imagination lacked the important aspect of being realistic in the actual world. She only cared and directed herself to the things that she thought that is enjoyable and got caught up in the process of trying to experience the freedom wrong way. I don’t blame her for being uneducated and vulnerable. First of all, she grew up in an ordinary family with a perfect sister who caught her mother’s attention as the perfect daughter. She also doubted herself to be as good as her sister, June. Connie has not been through or seen anything serious or hard and she never expected anything happen to her in the safe environment she was growing up. She was not thoroughly educated about the reality. So as a typical teenager who would learn by experiences, she did not bother to follow the same foot path her sisters, which is not ‘cool’ or what her teenage mind thought to be socially awkward or weird. It bothered her immensely that her mom complained about everything and asked her to step aside and follow the conventional methods so that she could live the lame life her sister was living. She wanted to try new things. She wanted to be liked by the society not the people who......

...Beauty "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." This quote explains how beauty is merely interpreted by the individual seeking it. Although some may say beauty conveys specific guidelines, it cannot be judged by one individual. Beauty does, however, come in several different forms. The inner beauty of an individual, the outer appearance a person displays, and the beauty surrounding a person are just three ways that it is portrayed in society. Inner beauty is found within one's self. It can define a person’s heart and personality; it can describe an inspiring view, or it can explain a person’s actions. The beauty a person has on the inside is seen with the heart, not with the eyes. Inner beauty is who a person is made to be. It is not shown on the surface, but below the appearance. The best beauty hides deep inside, and you may never see it. Beauty is like a treasure chest. The most important part of it is what it holds inside. A woman discovers she has breast cancer. As the chemotherapy begins, she starts to lose her hair along with her strength. She notices she is too tired to be involved with her children after work and cannot go the day without needing a full night's rest. Although the cancer is changing her appearance, she is still the same woman on the inside. The love of her family remains the same, and her personality is never changing. Physical beauty is what an individual appears to be to other people. Today's society has begun to put more...

...Final Draft of Extended Definition : Beauty Beauty is a subjective word and is defined differently from every person. Audrey Hepburn, a beautiful woman both inside and out once said, “The beauty of a woman does not lies on the clothes that she wear, the figure that she carries, or the way she comb her hair. The beauty of woman must be seen from her eyes because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” To me, beauty is defined by the measurement of your personality and morality. However, people nowadays tend to define beauty through what they see in social rather than the inner beauty itself. The media has effectively brainwashed our society into accepting a false, even potentially dangerous definition of beauty. They want us to believe to having the closest to correct bust line and waist line with lipstick and mascara on is decent enough to show our beauty. One example that proves the significance of outer beauty in our society is the increase of beauty products and services that we have today. All of these products and services emphasize the beauty on the outside, not the inside which in truth shows the truly beauty of ourselves. It is undeniable people nowadays invest more on their appearance as they believe to media’s interpretation of beauty. As you can see, most salons and spas are fully booked, nail salon chairs were occupied, and the sales of beauty products increase from day to day. The influence of media is too strong that people only judge...

...Beauty is not merely in the eye of the beholder but that there are universal standards of attractiveness on which most of us can agree. Standards of attractiveness are similar across different genders and cultures. Cross-cultural research has found a variety of commonalities in people's perception of beauty A feature of beautiful women that has been explored by researchers is a waist–hip ratio of approximately 0.70. Physiologists have shown that women with hourglass figures are more fertile than other women due to higher levels of certain female hormones, a fact that may subconsciously condition males choosing mates. Researchers have replicated the result under more controlled conditions and found that the computer generated, mathematical average of a series of faces is rated more favorably than individual faces. Evolutionarily, it makes logical sense that sexual creatures should be attracted to mates who possess predominantly common or average features Sexual attraction plays a part in being drawn to an individual There are evolutionary control mechanisms for all sexual responses Humans agree upon universal standards of beauty consisting of certain physical attributes, even across different ethnicity and culture subtle variations in how we look can convey vital information about a prospective partner’s health and fertility In prehistoric survival terms, the basic rules were: the more symmetrical and voluptuous a woman is, the more likely her offspring are to be...

.... The Australian case of Daniels v Anderson which deals with the tortuous duty of care owed by directors, is a clear instance of non-executive directors being increasingly held to an objective standard of care. ]The English case of Dorchester Finance v Stebbings4, is another such example. 1.8 The need for a code also results from economic forces and the need to reinvent the corporate enterprise, so as to efficiently meet emerging global competition. The world’s economies are tending towards market orientation. In market-oriented economies, companies are less protected by traditional and prescriptive legal rules and regulations. Malaysia is no exception and the shift to a full-disclosure regime, to be completed by the year 2001 is such an example. Hence there is the need for companies to be more efficient and well- managed than ever before to meet existing and anticipated world-wide competition. The role of directors then increases in importance. The role of the board in hiring the right management, compensating, monitoring, replacing and planning the succession of senior management is crucial, as management undertakes the key responsibility for the enterprise’s efficiency and competitiveness. The role of the Code is to guide boards by clarifying their responsibilities, and providing prescriptions strengthening the control exercised by boards over their companies. 1.9 In developing the Code we have been mindful of developments in other jurisdictions. We have...

This article stated that Jane Martin, whose name is a pseudonym, mainly writes plays that deal with feminist issues, but recently, she has expanded her writing to include a wider range of social issues, including child abuse and satire about the theater world. Her specific play, Beauty, conveys the theme of jealousy and delves into the idea of what beauty really is, in addition to the topic of how people search for happiness. (para. 1) 3. Firstly, this critic's discussion of Jane Martin's usage of plots that deal with wide ranges of social issues can provide context about her social views when she wrote her play, Beauty. Since she mainly writes about social issues, this source can be used as a reference point, enhancing my own views in my thesis concerning the theme of the play, as well as strengthening her stance on certain issues. Secondly, this source shows the development of her writing, expanding from just feminist issues to a much broader spectrum of issues, as in her play, Beauty. She broadens her views and writes about jealousy, the idea of real beauty, and humanity's search for true happiness. Lastly, this source can provide background......
