Definition of Beautifying:
The thoughts of men should be like the life- giving and beautifying sun, all- nourishing and all- enlightening; calling into existence and fructifying, not only the rich, and rare, and lovely, but also the noxious and poisonous plant and the creeping worm.- "Berlin and Sans-Souci", Louise Muhlbach.
- "An Introduction to Chemical Science", R.P. Williams.
Being a bachelor at present, he cooked for himself behind a little screen over a gas- stove; sometimes it was food, sometimes strange cosmetiques and chemical preparations for beautifying his clients.- "Lady Maude's Mania", George Manville Fenn.
