Things That are...Elegant

"Even the wisest woman you talk to is ignorant of something you may know, but an elegant woman never forgets her elegance."
-Oliver Wendell Holmes

Things that are Elegant...

* The hands of a lover...
* A string of pearls...
* Bare slender birch trees...
* The tall Dutch gardener carefully tending his plants...
* Fingertips...
* Fighting entropy...
* Water flowing down a gentle slope...
* Miss Ellie Rothman...
* Tea served in delicate china...

Please add your own list in the comments area...

"There is nothing more awkward or crude than a person absorbed in self-importance. And there is nothing more graceful and elegant than someone who is not." -- Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
