Elegance



One should, of course, defend oneself vigorously against the attacks of extra pounds, wrinkles, and double chins, but it is a battle that should be undertaken philosophically, for even the most skilful plastic surgery cannot recapture our youth. It is far better to settle down without vain regrets to a life filled with the rewards of past efforts and the joys that we at last have the means to give to others, instead of sulking like little girls when we are far too old to cast ourselves in such a childish role.
Elegance can be acquired only at the price of numerous errors that are best remembered with good humour. And in the end, it is in the moments when we forget ourselves entirely that we are at our most beautiful.

- Madame Dariaux
