"Beauty comes from a life well lived. If you've lived well, your smile lines are in the right places, and your frown lines aren't too bad, what more do you need?"
"When talking about one's beauty, I'd put it this way: Like a good hostess, you have to enjoy your own damn party, or else who will? I think taking it too seriously can ruin it."
There is no magic cure, no making it all go away forever. There are only small steps upward; an easier day, an unexpected laugh, a mirror that doesn't matter anymore.
