Compare/Contrast Essay Nickole Berrios Physical Beauty vs. Inner Beauty
Beauty is not a quality that is easily defined. People have their own definitions of beauty by what they perceive.

Physical beauty and inner beauty have similarities as well as many differences.
First, physical beauty is an aspect you can see. Whereas inner beauty is a concept related to the intellect and positive aspects that a person has inside. Inner beauty has internal characteristics that are often more difficult to find compared to physical beauty. Internal beauty is usually a person's personality, habits, and behavior. These types of people usually have characteristics such as humor, kindness, thoughtfulness, sympathetic, understanding, reliable, honest, loyal, and a joy to be around.

Good looking people start becoming old over the years so the characteristics that made them pretty begin to deteriorate. Physical beauty is temporary and is not valued as much the more you get to know a person. Though both beauties are very different and sometimes not found together in the same person, when looking for love people have a tendency to focus more on the physical aspect.

In conclusion, although physical beauty and inner beauty are both important, there are many differences. One may be beautiful from the outside, but true beauty lies within the person not outside.

Even though looks do count to an extent, if you have the traits of a lovable person, no looks can match up...
