The Radiance of a Charming Mind #2

IMG_8555

The radiance of a charming mind strikes through all deformity of features and still asserts it’s sway over the world of the affections.

 That chastened and delightful activity of soul, that spiritual energy which gives animation, grace and living light to the animal frame is, after all, the real source of beauty in a woman.

 It is that which gives eloquence to the language of her eyes, which sends the sweetest vermilion mantling to the cheeks and lights up the whole personnel, as if her very body thought.
