Beauty Secret

Conditions don’t belong to us.
They follow their own natural
course. We can’t do anything
about the way the body is. We
can beautify it a little, make it
look attractive and clean for a
while, like the young girls who
paint their lips and let their nails
grow long, but when old age
arrives, everyone is in the same
boat. That is the way the body is.
We can’t make it any other way.
But, what we can improve and
beautify is the mind.
