Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. --Ralph Waldo Emerson Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder!

Nothing is more beautiful than cheerfulness in an old face.
God's fingers can touch nothing but that they mould it into loveliness. --George MacDonald
