How to Acquire a Bright and Smooth Skin
"I have to tell you, ladies -- and the same must be said to the gentlemen, too --
that the great secret of acquiring a bright and beautiful skin lies in three simple things,
as I have said in my lecture on Beautiful Women -- temperance, exercise and cleanliness.
"No; if dssipation, late hours, and immoderation have once wrecked
the fair vessel of female charms, it is not in the power of
Esculapius himself to right the shattered bark,
and make it ride the sea in gallant trim again."
Hints to Gentlemen on the Art of Fascinating
"You cannot be too attentive to your dress. You should never approach a lady except
when dressed so as to look precisely as though a tailor had made you not more than
fifteen minutes ago.
If you are wise, you will not fail to impress upon a lady's mind the idea that you are a
great deal more particular about your clothes than your mind, for your mind,
being always out of sight, can never offend her taste, whereas your clothes are
constantly before her eyes."
