“There are many dimensions to beauty, and some more subtle than others. Aesthetically pleasing features are what society, particularly the media, use to define beauty. While these attributes are certainly eye catching, and sometimes mesmerizing, they lack depth. What makes a woman truly vibrant is the radiance and charisma with which she approaches the world. Her presence alone can inspire those around her, filling life with energy, love and passion. To define the attributes that embody this deep sense of “beauty” is impossible. When encountered, however, it is undeniably palpable.” (Paul — from a blog entitled, “14 men share their heart: What makes a woman beautiful”).
