How to Be Beautiful.
Would you like to be truly beautiful?
Thoreau says: “We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bones. Any nobleness begins at once to refine a man’s features, and any meanness or sensuality to imbrute them.”
So there, now, you sour-visaged, plain-faced people, go along about your business and grow handsome.
— Nixon Waterman, in National Magazine.
