Cleopatra was always portrayed as a woman of great beauty, an idea that is given weight by her successful conquests of the world's most powerful men. Some might say that is true, but opinions from an Ancient Greek historian Lucius Mestrius Plutarchus would suggest otherwise.
"For her beauty, as we are told, was in itself not altogether incomparable, nor such as to strike those who saw her; but converse with her had an irresistible charm, and her presence, combined with the persuasiveness of her discourse and the character which was somehow diffused about her behaviour towards others, had something stimulating about it. There was sweetness also in the tones of her voice; and her tongue, like an instrument of many strings, she could readily turn to whatever language she pleased..."
Judging on ancient Egyptians coins, she had large and a-bit-crooked nose with prominent chin. Because of that, it seemed like her beauty and her charm was in the way she presented herself, rather than the way she really looked.
Does it really matter? No. But we can learn one thing, true beauty not only come from the outside appearance, but from the inside and the way we presenting ourselves to other people. These kind of beauty would never fade, never grow old, but would forever remain in people's heart.
She might be in the highest position and influence a lot of people, while we are not. But, for me, I just want to start making a difference with people around me - especially to dearest Fernando and my family. And, THIS is my New Year Resolutions. One of them - I mean (Yeah, I have a lot of them! LOL).
