I want to talk about beauty. It may seem a subject that has been talked about for too long, and too much. But mankind never gets tired of beauty, ever since the dawn of civilization.
Ancient Greeks say it can launch a thousand ships.
Scientists say it advertise genetic quality.
Poet says it is God’s handwriting.
Economists say it has a price (not a too remote idea if you consider rich men’s wives, girlfriends, and mistresses!).
Comedian says beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.
Photoshop operators say beauty is digital trick.
Now, I am not Greek (if you took out the ‘r’, that’s more like it!), nor I am a scientist, a poet, or economist. I can’t operate Photoshop.
But here’s what I can say about Beauty.
Matanya menembus pertahanan Anda, membuat Anda merasa merasa telanjang di balik baju besi baja.
Suaranya yang membuat jiwa Anda gemetar dan melompat dalam sukacita pada saat yang sama.
It is The Smile so glorious it gives you sleepless nights.
It is The Touch that sends electric currents from your skin all the way to the Central Nervous System.
Beauty is what makes you forget all the other ugliness we call ‘reality’.
Beauty is what makes a coward out of brave men, and a hero out of coward men.
But most exquisite of all:
Beauty is a drop of eternity, in the passing ocean of mortality
Where time seems to stand still, and for a moment nothing else matters
Am I beautiful? hehe
PS: who do you think are the most beautiful women on the planet (at any of their lives, dead or alive)?
