she is only moved

“She accepts your compliments on her face,
her hair,
and her body graciously—
   and she is, indeed, beautiful.

   But she is only moved when you notice the beauty of her spirit.”

~ Allaisia Hanan

It’s easy to look at the outside of someone and decide whether the outside brings you any pleasure. It’s a much different thing to take the time to look within, to know, to see, to experience the hurricane inside another and find the beauty there.
