Fun Phrase: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

Its Fun Phrase Friday again!!!

This weeks fun phrase is.. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

Meaning: You see what your mind is predisposed to see, and what you see is not necessarily evident to others.

History: The concept appears as early as 1756 in Edmund Burke’s , “A Philosophical Inquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful” : “Beauty is, for the greater part, some quality in bodies acting mechanically upon the human mind by intervention of the senses.”The modern expression appears in Margaret Hungerford’s “Molly Bawn” (1878)
