"If either man or woman would realize the full power of personal beauty, it must be by cherishing noble thoughts and hopes and purposes; by having something to do and something to live for that is worthy of humanity, and which, by expanding the capacities of the soul, gives expansion and symmetry to the body, which contains it.[True beauty is within the reach of anyone who chooses virtue over vice! The choice is always yours!! The wise know it has nothing to do with physical attributes.]"
