I saw a quote the other day that said something to this effect:

If you are beautiful at age sixteen you can take no credit. If you are beautiful at age sixty, you have tended your soul well.

Any clue as to the author or the exact quote? Thanks, Kathy

You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing.~Marie Carmichael Stopes (1880-1958), Scottish author and campaigner for women's rights.

Nice quote. It is how beauty can be defined well. It is the magic of thought which poets express.
