There are many beautiful things in the world, and one of the most wonderful among them all is the way that beauty is captured through the eyes of another person. In books, the author allows us to join characters in watching the world around them & seeing the beauty in it.
Today I'll just focus on a few of the best female character descriptions I could find! Wouldn't you love it if someone would describe you with this kind of passion?
“She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.”
—J. D. Salinger, “A Girl I Knew”
"To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else's heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell."
— Gabriel García Márquez, "Love in the Time of Cholera"
