Hi, I'm Nini and this is the tumblr where I try to convey daily inspiration for the beauty loving soul. I'm inspired by the ancient Greek ideal of "ARTE" and their ideas about beauty, wisdom and love. (More about the philosophy of this place here...)

Please note: I try to credit all artists properly, if you discover an uncredited post and wish me to complete an information or remove works for copyright reasons, please let me know.

Also: Most of my posts are reblogs I have discovered via a great number of inspiring tumblr users I follow. I warmly encourage everyone to have a look at the notes below each post to see who blogged the content first or before me and follow these people as well! They deserve my full respect and praise - I am grateful for them to dig out such wonderful posts day after day!

‎There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.
(via idterab)
Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.
Confucius

(via pheonix-feather)

She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves.
J.K. Rowling
We are all chasing after the form of beauty.
Socrates - circa 385 B.C.

“The form of beauty” is a term that goes back to Plato’s philosophy of the forms. He believed that humans can only perceive reality in appearances, reflections and opinions. But beyond these exists something eternal: An intelligible world of true knowledge that follows a divine principle - the ultimate form itself. We can never see “this perfect blueprint” as we cannot seperate ourselves from the filter of limited perception - but we can feel an elevation when we come across something that is closer to the essence.
