pasture of worms!
Women, by men's idolizing them--are vainly proud
of their beauty, and more concerned lest their faces
be deformed, than their souls!
What is the body--but a mixture of earth and water?
What is beauty--but a superficial appearance--a
flower blasted by a thousand accidents? How soon
are the colors and charms of the face vanished? The
most beautiful are no less mortal than others--they
must shortly be the prey of death--and the
worms! Can such a fading toy inspire pride into them?
"Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman
who fears the Lord will be praised." Proverbs 31:30
