What is beautiful? Jolie laidePosted: August 9, 2015
People who have “beautiful” exteriors can begin to look ugly after you get to know them, while someone with a somewhat “average” face or even an “ugly” face can become the most beautiful person you know. This shows that beauty isn’t just a façade but an incandescent quality that is not solely dependent upon one’s gene pool.
Tom Robbins once wrote that the only way to burn is “Brilliantly, ecstatically, irrepressibly”.
This incandescent quality is what elevates a person above just hot or sexy. It’s the way they walk, talk and present themselves. It’s the way the person radiates from the inside out. It is the soul, spark and that thing you just can’t put your finger on.
Je ne sais quoi – They have got that thing~
It might be the someone you didn’t notice at first, the one who didn’t stand out. But they are the person you need to get to know, whose beauty becomes more defined with every conversation, every glance. Je ne sais quoi is a phrase that describes people who can’t be classified as just “hot”.
Plumb the depths: They’ve got a soul
High Adventure: They are open to new ideas and experiences
Awareness: They pay attention to needs and wants of people.
Mystery: They share information, but there is always more to be found in conversation.
No need for a crutch: They can go it alone
They know how to talk
They don’t chase the limelight
They show you their real face
Their passions define them more than their looks
