Beauty works from within

19e Elizabeth, Harriot, NorasmallMore wise words from Elizabeth Cady Stanton, pictured here in 1888 with her daughter Harriot Stanton Blatch and five-year-old granddaughter Nora: “Remember that beauty works from within, it cannot be put on and off like a garment, and it depends far more on the culture of the intellect, the tastes, sentiments, and affections of the soul, on an earnest unselfish life purpose to leave the world better than you find it, than the color of the hair, eyes or complexion. Be kind, noble, generous, magnanimous, be true to yourselves and your friends.”
