“A desire to be beautiful is not unwomanly.
A woman who is not beautiful cannot properly fill her place.
But, mark you, true beauty is not of the face, but of the soul.
There is a beauty so deep and lasting that it will shine out of the homeliest face and make it comely. This is the beauty to be first sought and admired. It is a quality of the mind and heart and is manifested in word and deed.”
