Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art."
A woman's hands can tell a lot about the life she's lived, so recently Huffington Post photographed the hands of eight ladies over the age of 75 to showcase just that. Ah, looking at those images and reading what each of the women have said made me realize how our hands are the physical manifestation of the strength, achievements, failures and happiness of our lives.
Powerful, don't you think?
P.S: Our perfections.
P.P.S: And busy hands.
