"Our culture is fearful of ageing," said Franklin, "and especially ageing women. I say, 'Stop apologising for getting older. Embrace it.' I want young women to see that beauty ages beautifully and there is no need to feel that getting older is something that has to be medicated, managed with surgery or be obsessed about."

    http://www.pinterest.com/pi... This is what I am talking about. I really don't see how "feminism" figures in here because there is judgment laid on men over their appearance as well. I was merely pointing out that there is beauty in all if you are willing to see it. And yes, I sure as heck think that your attitude shows in how you look.

    How we "look" is not necessarily defined by features, but rather, countenance. I've seen women born with natural good looks, as far as features go, but their countenance is anything but beautiful. I think that is the thing to which Kathryn was alluding

    i have to comment, just to tell you Denise how much I enjoyed your use of the word countenance! It is not often used anymore, but so appropriate and descriptive!

Eveline Hall ' What's the best age? I would say it's this very moment. I would like to be an inspiration for young women, to prove there are no age limits. My face reflects my life, my personality. One has to forget about surgery and liftings, one can be beautiful and sexy, but one can no longer be young."

We were young and beautiful ... now we're just beautiful. .❤

Beauty in youth is a freak of nature. Beauty with age is a work of art.

“Aging is not ‘lost youth,’ but a new stage of opportunity and strength. It’s a different stage of life, and if you are going to pretend it’s youth, you are going to miss it. You are going to miss the surprises, the possibilities, and the evolution that we are just beginning to know about because there are no role models, no guideposts, and no signs.” ~ Betty Friedan

So much has been said and sung of beautiful young girls. Why doesn’t somebody wake up to the beauty of old women.’ Harriet Beecher Stowe
