"BEAUTY IS A THING OF LIFE"

"Beauty is a thing of life, which dwells forever in the eternal Mind and reflects the charms of His goodness in expression, form, outline, and color." If we accept Mary Baker Eddy's statement in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 247), we see that "beauty is a thing of life," ever in divine Mind, and that man, in God's image and likeness, has always been its expression. The beauty of man's eternal perfection can never be hidden.

If we look for beauty in the body, we find that which is temporal and subject to age and decay. Mrs. Eddy writes on the same page of Science and Health, "The embellishments of the person are poor substitutes for the charms of being, shining resplendent and eternal over age and decay." When we look for beauty in Spirit, we find eternal loveliness.
