Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
It is often said that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and this goes to prove that beauty is highly subjective word, which varies from indl to indl. We all obviously have different tastes. What appears beautiful to one person may seem ugly or not so beautiful to another. It is the person who is looking (the beholder) who has to form his or her own opinion whether a particular person, place or object is beautiful.
It means that each individual person see beauty different than the other. You may see a person, a dog or cat, a car, a painting, or anything else and to you each is beautiful within itself. While another person may see the same individual items and not thinks them beautiful.
This saying first appeared in the 3rd century BC in Greek. It didn't appear in its current form until the 19th century, but in the meantime there were various written forms that expressed much the same thought. "Beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them. The person who is widely credited with coining the saying in its current form is Margaret Wolfe Hungerford (née Hamilton), who wrote many books.
But more often it is used to explain that all indls they vary in the opinion about same particular object or subject. Actually all indls see at the object with their own mind set and with these feelings they translate them into their own shapes.
