Is beauty supposed to be eternal?
Has beauty been made to last forever?
Or is it a temporal idea, thing, concept?
Is it only for a ‘limited time only’?
Or is it designed to last?
What is beauty?
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.
What is beautiful to me, may not be beautiful to you.
And vice versa.
It’s a perception.
Beauty can fade (Therefore, it is temporal).
Or is it the newness of the beautiful thing, object, idea that fades?
Some objects, things, items, even ideas, can grow more beautiful with age.
Some scents grow deeper & stronger with age.
It must be the newness of the thing that fades and can quickly wear off, not necessarily beauty itself (Therefore, beauty must be eternal).
Is beauty temporal or eternal?
