Form follows beauty.

Oscar Niemeyer

For me beauty is valued more than anything - the beauty that is manifest in a curved line or in an act of creativity.

Oscar Niemeyer

My work is not about 'form follows function,' but 'form follows beauty' or, even better, 'form follows feminine.'

Oscar Niemeyer

Beauty and folly are old companions.

Benjamin Franklin

Wisdom I know is social. She seeks her fellows. But Beauty is jealous, and illy bears the presence of a rival.

Thomas Jefferson

It's a good thing that beauty is only skin deep, or I'd be rotten to the core.

Phyllis Diller

Beauty itself is but the sensible image of the Infinite.

Francis Bacon

The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.

Francis Bacon

There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.

Francis Bacon
