Nefertem

Profile

Once upon a time—according to Egyptian mythology—there was nothing at all. A giant flower floated up to the surface of the water that the universe was filled with, and when it opened, a beautiful baby popped out. Suddenly, the sun began to rise, and creation began. Nefertem, which means "beautiful and complete," was what the ancient Egyptians called this perfect baby boy. When he grew up, he became Ra. But until then, Nefertem was the gorgeous god of everything beautiful and sweet, including sunshine, flowers, incense, perfume, and healing medicines. (McDreamy, anyone?)

Quotations

"Sickness and healing are in every heart; death and deliverance in every hand." 
– Orson Scott Card

"Like anyone else, there are days I feel beautiful and days I don't, and when I don't, I do something about it."
– Cheryl Tiegs

"When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong."
– R. Buckminster Fuller

"I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves."
