The Eclectic Beauty
The great beauties of today conform to no national image.
Their blood springs from many lands and origins.
Their physiognomies and contours are not the expression
of one cultured ideal, but of many.
Their beauty transcends locality, recognizes no frontiers.
True beauty never resides merely in the separate
perfections of body and face: inevitably,
it is fused by a vital sense of identity, concentrated
at the center of being. All great beauties know themselves.
