In short, Beauty is everywhere. It is not that she is lacking to our eye, but our eyes which fail to perceive her. Beauty is character and expression. Well, there is nothing in nature which has more character than the human body. In its strength and its grace it evokes the most varied images. One moment it resembles a flower: the bending torso is the stalk; the breasts, the head, and the splendor of the hair answer to the blossoming of the corolla. The next moment it recalls the pliant creeper, or the proud and upright sapling.

    bref, la beauté est partout. ce n'est pas qu'elle manque à nos yeux, mais nos yeux qui ne l'aperçoivent pas. la beauté est caractère et expression. eh bien, il n'y a rien dans la nature qui ait plus de caractère que le corps humain. dans sa force et sa grâce il évoque les images les plus variées. un instant, elle ressemble à une fleur : le torse fléchissant est la tige ; les seins, la tête et la splendeur des cheveux répondent à l'épanouissement de la corolle. l'instant d'après, il rappelle la plante grimpante souple, ou le jeune arbre fier et droit.
