The loveliest faces are to be seen by moonlight, when one sees half with the eye and half with the fancy.
— Proverbs

The loveliest face in all the world will not please you if you see it suddenly eye to eye, at a distance of half an inch from your own.
Max Beerbohm loveliest quote

The city is loveliest when the sweet death racket begins. Her own life lived in defiance of nature, her electricity, her frigidaires, her soundproof walls, the glint of lacquered nails, the plumes that wave across the corrugated sky. Here in the coffin depths grow the everlasting flowers sent by telegraph.
— Henry Miller

Loveliest of lovely things are they on earth that soonest pass away. The rose that lives its little hour is prized beyond the sculptured flower.
— William C. Bryant

Nature composes some of her loveliest poems for the microscope and the telescope.
— Theodore Roszak
