  1. Belle

    Belle is a fictional main character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' thirtieth animated feature film Beauty and the Beast. She subsequently appears in the film's two direct-to-video midquels Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas and Belle's Magical World, direct-to-video spin-off Belle's Tales of Friendship, and television series Sing Me a Story with Belle. From 1991 to 2011, Belle was voiced by American actress and singer Paige O'Hara, who auditioned for the role after she read about it in The New York Times. Since 2011, Belle has been voiced by American actress Julie Nathanson. Created by screenwriter Linda Woolverton and animated by James Baxter and Mark Henn, Belle is the daughter of an infamous inventor named Maurice, with whom she lives in a small town in France. Though perceived by her fellow villagers as "the most beautiful girl in town," Belle is considered strange and an outcast because of her love of reading and non-conformity. Romantically pursued by a handsome but arrogant hunter named Gaston, in whom she shows no romantic interest because of his conceitedness and sexist mentality, Belle dreams of leaving her provincial village life in favor of adventure. When her father is taken prisoner by the Beast, Belle sacrifices her own freedom, taking his place in order to save his life and eventually learning to accept him for who he is despite his appearance. Intelligent, strong-willed, outspoken and brave, Belle is a young woman who refuses to succumb to her village's outdated view on the role of women in society.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Belle

    bel, n. a handsome woman: the chief beauty of a place: a fair lady generally. [Fr. belle—L. bella, bellus.]

  1. Pierre Carol:

    I walk by (La Belle Equipe) every day on my way to work, how can this be? Young people just enjoying life and relaxing after a long week at work. Why the young innocent people?

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Nous savons que tout ce qui brille ne est pas or, mais ce est de l'or brille toujours. Même tout ce qui semble belle ne est pas bon, mais ce qui eat bon est toujours belle. Votre perception et la réalité peuvent être radicalement différent, alors ne vous laissez pas berner par les apparences qui sont souvent trompeuses. Toujours regarder plus profond, et la vraie beauté va se révéler.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    l'un des mythes les plus anciens et bien acceptées, ce qui est le plus grand ennemi de la vérité, à mon avis, est que l'on peut tout simplement pas maintenir la meilleure qualité de vie sans consommer dangereux, toxiques, et des substances appauvrissant. Ce mythe a été persistant, mais irréaliste. Aujourd'hui, les scientifiques novateurs et brillants disciples de la chimie verte défient ce mythe antique de compromis et «quid pro quo» - en concevant apprpriately leurs réactions chimiques, et la sélection des alternatives non-dangereuses à réactifs sinon toxiques. que c'est la façon de se rendre! nous devons penser à l'environnement, à conserver notre belle terre mère fraîche et propre - à tout moment.

Ce sont les années les plus merveilleuses et très productifs trois et demi de ma vie. J'ai eu la chance de travailler en association avec l'un des scientifiques de génie au Royaume-Uni (Professeur David Cole-Hamilton) à la plus belle place dans le monde, St. Andrews. Mon travail de recherche a donné lieu à divers brevets et publications, la création d'une marque remarquable de distinction qui fait stll moi extrêmement fiers. Université de St. Andrews est non seulement la plus ancienne université et prestigieux dans le monde, mais aussi la crème de la crème, le meilleur du meilleur, et coupé au-dessus du reste! Mes meilleurs vœux de usa, à l'université de St. Andrews. Merci Beaucoup, Alma Mater.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Losque vous serez naviguez heureux dans l'océan bleu, pensant que la vie est tout l'amusement. précisément à ce moment-là encore, vous serez attirés par compétence mortelle de sirène. ne oubliez jamais que la sirène est la créature de la fey, qui impitoyablement voler votre coeur loin. ne jamais ose pas regarder dans ses beaux yeux, vous serez laissé seul avec vos soupirs tristes et pitoyables cris. dans le voyage de la vie, l'appel de la sirène est livré avec un prix à payer, pour le pauvre marin qui perd sa vie à cette belle créature du fey.
