Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest.

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventures. There is no end to the adventures that we can have, if only we seek them with our eyes open. We are learning, too, that the love of beauty is one of nature’s greatest healers. To love, beauty is to see light. Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
