- Personally, I can't understand why she finds him attractive, but they do say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I can't believe Ted bought that ugly old car. - He loves it. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
  • 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."
