"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" ~ Plato. --- I truly believe this quote being beauty is subjective. I decided to do some research on this and came up with;

In 1588, the English dramatist John Lyly, in his Euphues and his England, wrote: "...as neere is Fancie to Beautie, as the pricke to the Rose, as the stalke to the rynde, as the earth to the roote."

In 1588 Shakespeare expressed a similar sentiment in Love's Labours Lost: "...Good Lord Boyet, my beauty, though but mean. Needs not the painted flourish of your praise: Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye, not utter'd by base sale of chapmen's tongues."

1741 Benjamin Franklin in Poor Richard's Almanack wrote: "...Beauty, like supreme dominion Is but supported by opinion."

(Note: The U. S. Constitution explicitly provides for grand juries, a fact known by most 1st year law students).

The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose. An evil soul producing holy witness Is like a villain with a smiling cheek, A goodly apple rotten at the heart. O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath! ~ William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
