[Quote No.46978] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[Healthy, natural nutrition and diet:] Aging happens to all of us, of course. And there's no way to put the brakes on it, no matter what the latest 'nutraceuticals' may claim. But an unhealthy diet can send your aging process into overdrive and leave you looking years older than you really are. And, it probably isn't doing the inside of your body any favors, either. ... Timothy Harlan, assistant professor of medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine, a former restaurateur known as 'Dr. Gourmet,' and author of 'Just Tell Me What to Eat!', says, 'There's an incredible amount of evidence that says that eating junk puts your body into an inflammatory state. Poor-quality foods, like trans fats, cause inflammation -- and aging is basically a chronic inflammatory state.' Harlan asks: 'Can you look older because you're eating crap?' And he answers: 'Absolutely.' For example, too much sugar and processed carbohydrates in the diet can lead to the production of what are called AGEs -- advanced glycation end products. 'These are associated with a number of diseases, like heart disease and diabetes,' says Andrea Giancoli, MPH, RD, a nutrition policy consultant for the California Center for Public Health Advocacy. What's more, she says, 'they also damage the collagen and fibers of your skin. ... Your skin is essentially made of protein, so if you don’t get enough healthy protein in your diet, your skin will reflect that... Skin sloughs off all the time, so you need regular incoming doses of vitamins, nutrients, plant chemicals that we call phytonutrients, healthy fats, and proteins. If you’re not getting enough of the good stuff on a regular basis, you won’t be able to produce healthy new skin cells in the way that you should.'... " - Gina Shaw

[Quote No.51545] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[A story - with a message about appearance and content:] Balloons - There was a man who made his living selling balloons at a fair. He had all colors of balloons, including red, yellow and green. Whenever business was slow, he would release a helium filled balloon into the air and when the children saw it go up, they would all want to buy one. They would come up to him, buy a balloon and his sales would go up again. He continued this process each day. One day, he felt something tugging his jacket. He turned around and saw a little boy who asked, 'If you release a black balloon, would that also fly?' Moved by the boy's concern, the man replied with empathy. 'Son, it's not the color of the balloon, it’s what’s inside that makes it fly.’ The same thing applies in our lives. It’s not what we look like but what’s inside that counts." - Unknown

[Quote No.51965] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[A story - with a message about appearances and inner beauty:] - World of Smiles - About ten years ago when I was an undergraduate in college, I was working as an intern at my University's Museum of Natural History. One day while working at the cash register in the gift shop, I saw an elderly couple come in with a little girl in a wheelchair. As I looked closer at this girl, I saw that she was kind of perched on her chair. I then realized she had no arms or legs, just a head, neck and torso. She was wearing a little white dress with red polka dots. As the couple wheeled her up to me I was looking down at the register. I turned my head toward the girl and gave her a wink. As I took the money from her grandparents, I looked back at the girl, who was giving me the cutest, largest smile I have ever seen. All of a sudden her handicap was gone and all I saw was this beautiful girl, whose smile just melted me and almost instantly gave me a completely new sense of what life is all about. She took me from a poor, unhappy college student and brought me into her world; a world of smiles, love and warmth. That was ten years ago. I'm a successful business person now and whenever I get down and think about the troubles of the world, I think about that little girl and the remarkable lesson about life that she taught me." - Unknown

[Quote No.52203] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[A true story - with a message about the importance of personality over appearance, character and values over skin-deep beauty.] - Appointment with Love - Six minutes to six, said the great round clock over the information booth in Grand Central Station. The tall young Army lieutenant who had just come from the direction of the tracks lifted his sunburned face, and his eyes narrowed to note the exact time. His heart was pounding with a beat that shocked him because he could not control it. In six minutes, he would see the woman who had filled such a special place in his life for the past 13 months, the woman he had never seen, yet whose written words had been with him and sustained him unfailingly. He placed himself as close as he could to the information booth, just beyond the ring of people besieging the clerks... Lieutenant Blandford remembered one night in particular, the worst of the fighting, when his plane had been caught in the midst of a pack of Zeros. He had seen the grinning face of one of the enemy pilots. In one of his letters, he had confessed to her that he often felt fear, and only a few days before this battle, he had received her answer: ‘Of course you fear ... all brave men do. Didn't King David know fear? That's why he wrote the 23rd Psalm. Next time you doubt yourself, I want you to hear my voice reciting to you: 'Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for Thou art with me.'‘ And he had remembered; he had heard her imagined voice, and it had renewed his strength and skill. Now he was going to hear her real voice. Four minutes to six. His face grew sharp. Under the immense, starred roof, people were walking fast, like threads of color being woven into a gray web. A girl passed close to him, and Lieutenant Blandford started. She was wearing a red flower in her suit lapel, but it was a crimson sweet pea, not the little red rose they had agreed upon. Besides, this girl was too young, about 18, whereas Hollis Meynell had frankly told him she was 30. ‘Well, what of it?’ he had answered. ‘I'm 32.’ He was 29. His mind went back to that book - the book the Lord Himself must have put into his hands out of the hundreds of Army library books sent to the Florida training camp. Of Human Bondage, it was; and throughout the book were notes in a woman's writing. He had always hated that writing-in-habit, but these remarks were different. He had never believed that a woman could see into a man's heart so tenderly, so understandingly. Her name was on the bookplate: Hollis Meynell. He had got hold of a New York City telephone book and found her address. He had written, she had answered. Next day he had been shipped out, but they had gone on writing. For 13 months, she had faithfully replied, and more than replied. When his letters did not arrive she wrote anyway, and now he believed he loved her, and she loved him. But she had refused all his pleas to send him her photograph. That seemed rather bad, of course. But she had explained: ‘If your feeling for me has any reality, any honest basis, what I look like won't matter. Suppose I'm beautiful. I'd always be haunted by the feeling that you had been taking a chance on just that, and that kind of love would disgust me. Suppose I'm plain (and you must admit that this is more likely). Then I'd always fear that you were going on writing to me only because you were lonely and had no one else. No, don't ask for my picture. When you come to New York, you shall see me and then you shall make your decision. Remember, both of us are free to stop or to go on after that - whichever we choose...’ One minute to six - he pulled hard on a cigarette. Then Lieutenant Blandford's heart leaped higher than his plane had ever done. A young woman was coming toward him. Her figure was long and slim; her blond hair lay back in curls from her delicate ears. Her eyes were blue as flowers, her lips and chin had a gentle firmness. In her pale green suit, she was like springtime come alive. He started toward her, entirely forgetting to notice that she was wearing no rose, and as he moved, a small, provocative smile curved her lips. ‘Going my way, soldier?’ she murmured. Uncontrollably, he made one step closer to her. Then he saw Hollis Meynell. She was standing almost directly behind the girl, a woman well past 40, her graying hair tucked under a worn hat. She was more than plump; her thick-ankled feet were thrust into low- heeled shoes. But she wore a red rose in the rumpled lapel of her brown coat. The girl in the green suit was walking quickly away. Blandford felt as though he were being split in two, so keen was his desire to follow the girl, yet so deep was his longing for the woman whose spirit had truly companioned and upheld his own; and there she stood. Her pale, plump face was gentle and sensible; he could see that now. Her gray eyes had a warm, kindly twinkle. Lieutenant Blandford did not hesitate. His fingers gripped the small worn, blue leather copy of ‘Of Human Bondage’, which was to identify him to her. This would not be love, but it would be something precious, something perhaps even rarer than love - a friendship for which he had been and must ever be grateful. He squared his broad shoulders, saluted and held the book out toward the woman, although even while he spoke he felt shocked by the bitterness of his disappointment. ‘I'm Lieutenant John Blandford, and you - you are miss Meynell. I'm so glad you could meet me. May...may I take you to dinner?’ The woman's face broadened in a tolerant smile. ‘I don't know what this is all about, son,’ she answered. ‘That young lady in the green suit - the one who just went by - begged me to wear this rose on my coat. And she said that if you asked me to go out with you, I should tell you that she's waiting for you in that big restaurant across the street. She said it was some kind of a test. I've got two boys with Uncle Sam myself, so I didn't mind to oblige you.’" - Sulamith Ish-Kishor

[Quote No.52238] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[Poem: about remembering the importance of content over appearance, substance over style and 'not judging a book by its cover'.]

'The Locket'

It was tarnished and old with a broken clasp.
I tossed it into the drawer.
Why did my mother give it to me,
And what would I want it for?

She said I liked it long ago,
When it was shiny and new.
But why she thought I'd like it now,
I really wished I knew.

The years passed by, and my little girl,
Was going through my things,
Slipping bracelets on her arm,
And trying on my rings.

'What's this?' I heard my daughter ask,
As she held it for me to see.
'Why, it's just an old locket,' I replied,
'That your grandma gave to me.'

'Oh, Mommy, isn't it beautiful?
It's shaped just like a book,
With pages you can turn inside,
And pictures... Oh, look, Mommy, look.'

I saw it then through a child's new eyes,
What I should have seen from the start,
The reason my mother treasured it so,
And wore it close to her heart.

Now when I'm tempted to look at the surface,
Discounting what's broken or old,
I think of the locket all tarnished outside
With an inside of purest gold!

[Quote No.52373] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[A true story - with a message about love and true beauty.] - The Beauty of Ugly - Everyone in the apartment complex I lived in knew who Ugly was. Ugly was the resident tomcat. Ugly loved three things in this world: fighting, eating garbage, and, shall we say, love. The combination of these things combined with a life spent outside had their effect on Ugly. To start with, he had only one eye and where the other should have been was a gaping hole. He was also missing his ear on the same side, his left foot appeared to have been badly broken at one time, and had healed at an unnatural angle, making him look like he was always turning the corner. His tail has long age been lost, leaving only the smallest stub, which he would constantly jerk and twitch. Ugly would have been a dark grey tabby, striped-type, except for the sores covering his head, neck, even his shoulders with thick, yellowing scabs. Every time someone saw Ugly there was the same reaction. ‘That's one UGLY cat!!’ All the children were warned not to touch him, the adults threw rocks at him, hosed him down, squirted him when he tried to come in their homes, or shut his paws in the door when he would not leave. Ugly always had the same reaction. If you turned the hose on him, he would stand there, getting soaked until you gave up and quit. If you threw things at him, he would curl his lanky body around feet in forgiveness. Whenever he spied children, he would come running, meowing frantically and bump his head against their hands, begging for their love. If you ever picked him, up he would immediately begin suckling on your shirt, earrings, whatever he could find. One day Ugly shared his love with the neighbor's huskies. They did not respond kindly, and Ugly was badly mauled. From my apartment I could hear his screams, and I tried to rush to his aid. By the time I got to where he was laying, it was apparent Ugly's sad life was almost at an end. Ugly lay in a wet circle, his back legs and lower back twisted grossly out of shape, a gaping tear in the white strip of fur that ran down his front. As I picked him up and tried to carry him home, I could hear him wheezing and gasping, and could feel him struggling. It must be hurting him terribly, I thought. Then I felt a familiar tugging, sucking sensation on my ear. Ugly, in so much pain, suffering and obviously dying, was trying to suckle my ear. I pulled him closer to me, and he bumped the palm of my hand with his head, then he turned his one golden eye towards me, and I could hear the distinct sound of purring. Even in the greatest pain, that ugly battled-scarred cat was asking only for a little affection, perhaps some compassion. At that moment I thought Ugly was the most beautiful, loving creature I had ever seen. Never once did he try to bite or scratch me, or even try to get away from me, or struggle in any way. Ugly just looked up at me completely trusting in me to relieve his pain. Ugly died in my arms before I could get inside, but I sat and held him for a long time afterwards, thinking about how one scarred, deformed little stray could so alter my opinion about what it means to have true pureness of spirit, to love so totally and truly. Ugly taught me more about giving and compassion than a thousand books, lectures, or talk show specials ever could, and for that I will always be thankful. He had been scarred on the outside, but I was scarred on the inside, and it was time for me to move on and learn to love truly and deeply. To give my total to those I cared for. Many people want to be richer, more successful, well liked, beautiful, but for me, I will always try to be Ugly." - Unknown

"[Poem:]

'If the World Was Blind'

If the world was blind,
Maybe then we'd see,
The true side of beauty,
Deep within you and me.

No one could judge us,
By our outer looks,
Like the fancy covers,
On expensive books.

We'd see with our hearts,
And not just our eyes,
And what we'd discover,
Might be a surprise.

There would be no need,
To try to impress,
With the way we look,
Or the way that we dress.

The only thing that would matter,
Is the way we would feel,
Not phoney or cheap,
But truthful and real.

"[A true story - with a message that the consciously chosen contents of a person's heart and mind are infinitely more important than their genetically accidental appearance to all who are wise.] - Ugly Duckling? - A young girl was depressed because she was not beautiful. She was discouraged, but as she grew older, her attitude changed. 'I realized that not being beautiful was actually a blessing in disguise,' she said. 'It forced me to develop inner resources and strength. I came to understand that women who can't lean on their beauty must work harder to have the advantage.' That girl was Golda Meir. She went on to become the first woman prime minister of Israel. She not only accepted herself, but rejoiced in who she was." - Unknown

"[Poem: about the superiority of contents over appearance.]

'No More Clichés'

Beautiful face
That like a daisy opens its petals to the sun
So do you
Open your face to me as I turn the page.

Enchanting smile
Any man would be under your spell,
Oh, beauty of a magazine.

How many poems have been written to you?
How many Dantes have written to you, Beatrice?
To your obsessive illusion
To you manufacture fantasy.

But today I won't make one more Cliché
And write this poem to you.
No, no more clichés.

This poem is dedicated to those women
Whose beauty is in their charm,
In their intelligence,
In their character,
Not on their fabricated looks.

This poem is to you women,
That like a Scheherazade wake up
Everyday with a new story to tell,
A story that sings for change
That hopes for battles:
Battles for the love of the united flesh
Battles for passions aroused by a new day
Battle for the neglected rights
Or just battles to survive one more night.

Yes, to you women in a world of pain
To you, bright star in this ever-spending universe
To you, fighter of a thousand-and-one fights
To you, friend of my heart.

From now on, my head won't look down to a magazine
Rather, it will contemplate the night
And its bright stars,
And so, no more clichés.

'A Man's A Man For A' That'

We dare be poor for a' that!
For a' that, an' a' that.
Our toils obscure an' a' that,

The Man's the gowd for a' that.

What though on hamely fare we dine,
Wear hoddin grey, an' a that;
Gie fools their silks, and knaves their wine;
A Man's a Man for a' that:
For a' that, and a' that,
Their tinsel show, an' a' that;
The honest man, tho' e'er sae poor,
Is king o' men for a' that.

Ye see yon birkie, ca'd a lord,
Wha struts, an' stares, an' a' that;
Tho' hundreds worship at his word,
He's but a coof for a' that:
For a' that, an' a' that,

He looks an' laughs at a' that.

A prince can mak a belted knight,
A marquis, duke, an' a' that;
But an honest man's abon his might,
Gude faith, he maunna fa' that!
For a' that, an' a' that,
Their dignities an' a' that;
The pith o' sense, an' pride o' worth,
Are higher rank than a' that.

Then let us pray that come it may,
(As come it will for a' that,)

Shall bear the gree, an' a' that.
For a' that, an' a' that,
It's coming yet for a' that,
That Man to Man, the world o'er,
Shall brothers be for a' that.

[http://www.robertburns.org/works/496.shtml ]

This has been set to music, and you may have heard it sung. It is written in Ayrshire dialect, and English, but the sentiments expressed are universal.

In Verse One, Burns is saying that wealth, or lack of it, and social class should not be the measure of a man's true worth. 'The rank is but the guinea's stamp' means that a person cannot be given a price. The man's character is the true gold.

Verse Two continues the theme. We may wear ordinary clothes, and eat simple food, but appearance is just a show, like tinsel. Honesty is worth more than fancy clothes.

Now Verse Three might have got Burns into some trouble in Edinburgh. The birkie (cool young guy) who struts around, and has the title of Lord, is only a coof (an idiot). The man who learns to think for himself is worth much more than that.

Verse Four continues this theme. Princes can hand out titles at will, but honesty and pure goodness are worth much more. Self respect doesn't come from inherited wealth or titles.

Verse Five is a prayer that Sense and Worth shall eventually agree with all mankind. Burns imagines a future world in which all people will live as brothers, in mutual trust and respect. 'It's coming yet, for a' that'.

"[Poem: about beauty and how it differs between appearance - 'only skin-deep', and substance - 'from the heart']

'Beautiful Things'

Beautiful faces are those that wear -
It matters little if dark or fair -
Whole-souled honesty printed there.

Beautiful eyes are those that show,
Like crystal panes where hearth-fires glow,
Beautiful thoughts that burn below.

Beautiful lips are those whose words
Leap from the heart like songs of birds,
Yet whose utterance prudence girds.

Beautiful hands are those that do
Work that is earnest and brave and true,
Moment by moment the long day through.

...

" - Ellen P. Allerton
(1835 – 1893), American poet whose inspiration probably came from her life on farms in rural New York, Wisconsin, and Kansas.

[Quote No.53440] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[Poem: about, after sleeping, getting up in the morning and starting the day with optimism]

'Song Before Breakfast'

Hopeful each morning I arise
And splash the cobwebs from my eyes.
I brush my teeth and scrape my chin
And bravely at the mirror grin.

Sternly I force myself to say,
Huzza! Huzza! Another day!
Oh happy me! Oh lucky I!
Another chance with life to vie!

Another golden opportunity
To rise and shine in the community!
Another target for my aim!
Another whack at wealth and fame!

...

" - Ogden Nash
American poet

[Quote No.53732] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[Beauty is more than appearance as the following quote about the author Mary Ann Evans, who wrote using the pen-name of George Eliot:] She is magnificently ugly -- deliciously hideous . . . in this vast ugliness resides a most powerful beauty which, in a very few minutes, steals forth and charms the mind, so that you end as I ended, in falling in love with her." - Henry James
(1843-1916), American writer who spent most of his writing career in Britain. He was the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. [Mary Ann Evans (1819-1880) was considered physically unattractive from early childhood, and it is widely believed that she compensated for her lack of beauty by becoming a voracious reader and serious student. After serving as a magazine editor, essayist, and translator in Germany, she moved back to England, adopted the male 'nom de plume' of George Eliot, and began producing some of history's great novels, including 'Adam Bede,' 'Middlemarch,' 'Silas Marner,' and 'The Mill on the Floss.' Seven months before he death, at age 61, she set tongues wagging by marrying John Cross, a man twenty years her junior.]

[Quote No.55347] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[To increase your attractiveness to others be cheerful, smiling and laughing, all the time except when showing sympathy for another's problems and pains is more appropriate:] The cheerful man [grateful that things are not worse] carries with him perpetually, in his presence and personality, an influence that acts upon others as summer warmth on the fields and forests. It wakes up and calls out the best that is in them. It makes them stronger, braver, and happier. Such a man makes a little spot of this world a lighter, brighter, warmer place for other people to live in. To meet him in the morning is to get inspiration which makes all the day's struggles and tasks easier. His hearty handshake puts a thrill of new vigor into your veins. After talking with him for a few minutes, you feel an exhilaration of spirits, a quickening of energy, a renewal of zest and interest in living, and are ready for any duty or service." - Orison Swett Marden
From his book, 'Cheerfulness as a Life Power', first published 1899.

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. [Wise people have learned that real beauty is not the skin-deep physical beauty.]" - Wayne W. Dyer

[Quote No.58725] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[Smile, smiling, laughing, etc:-] The facial feedback hypothesis states that facial movement can influence emotional experience. For example, an individual who is forced to smile during a social event will actually come to find the event more of an enjoyable experience. ... Charles Darwin was among the first to suggest that physiological changes caused by an emotion had a direct impact on, rather than being just the consequence of that emotion. He wrote: 'The free expression by outward signs of an emotion intensifies it. On the other hand, the repression, as far as this is possible, of all outward signs softens our emotions... Even the simulation of an emotion tends to arouse it in our minds.' Following on this idea, William James proposed that, contrary to common belief, awareness of bodily changes activated by a stimulus 'is the emotion'. If no bodily changes are felt, there is only an intellectual thought, devoid of emotional warmth. In The Principles of Psychology, James wrote: 'Refuse to express a passion, and it dies'. This proved difficult to test, and little evidence was available, apart from some animal research and studies of people with severely impaired emotional functioning. The facial feedback hypothesis, 'that skeletal muscle feedback from facial expressions plays a causal role in regulating emotional experience and behaviour' developed almost a century after Darwin. ... While James included the influence of all bodily changes on the creation of an emotion, 'including among them visceral, muscular, and cutaneous effects', modern research mainly focuses on the effects of facial muscular activity. One of the first to do so, Silvan Tomkins wrote in 1962 that 'the face expresses affect, both to others and the self, via feedback, which is more rapid and more complex than any stimulation of which the slower moving visceral organs are capable'. Two versions of the facial feedback hypothesis appeared, although 'these distinctions have not always been consistent'. The weak version, introduced by Darwin, sees the feedback intensify or reduce an emotion already present. Thomas McCanne and Judith Anderson (1987) instructed participants to suppress or increase the zygomatic or corrugator muscle while imagining pleasant or unpleasant scenes. Subsequent alteration of the emotional response was shown to have occurred. The strong version implies that facial feedback by itself can create the whole emotion. According to Jeffrey Browndyke, 'the strongest evidence for the facial feedback hypothesis to date comes from research by Lanzetta et al. (1976)' ... Participants had lower skin conductance and subjective ratings of pain when hiding the painfulness of the shocks they endured, compared with those who expressed intense pain!" - wikipedia.org
