True Beauty

Thursday, April 16, 2009

The following quote from Daughters of Destiny by Noelle Wheeler is one of my favorites and one I should read often. It is such a good reminder of what true beauty is!

"Beauty and style are not the surest passports to womanhood - some of the noblest examples of womanhood in the world, have looked quite plain in outward appearance. A woman's worth is to be estimated by the real goodness of her heart, the greatness of her soul, and the purity and sweetness of her character; and a woman with a kindly disposition and well-balanced temper, is both lovely and attractive, even if her face is plain and her figure imperfect; she makes the best of wives and the truest of mothers. She has a higher purpose in living than the beautiful, yet vain and supercilious woman, who has no higher ambition than to flaunt her finery on the street, or to gratify her inordinate vanity by extracting flatter and praise from society, whose compliments are as hollow as they are insincere.

".....Outward beauty is shallow - only skin-deep; fleeting-only reigning fro a season. But inward beauty will last forever. If you desire to be admired and beloved, be an example of beautiful womanhood and cultivate the virtues of the heart. ....Seek then, fair daughters, the possesion of the inward grace, whose essence shall fragrance and vitalize the affections, adorn the countenance, make sweet the voice, and impart a hallowed beauty throughout your very being."

"Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies...."
Proverbs 31: 10
