Beauty is dangerous, draws us into their networks and makes us love beating just to contemplate. No greater than that of the well-used beauty power.

That’s the real beauty to get, because it is not material, or bought with money, however, it seems to be paid to experiences, and they say that the more negative experiences in his life have had a person, the inner beauty treasures.
