Sophia Loren Quotes:

A woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence, serving its purpose without obstructing the view.

Sex appeal is 50% of what you’ve got, and 50% of what people think you’ve got.

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.

I believe that the quality of attraction comes from within. Sensuality and sensuality is something that is in you or it isn’t, and it really doesn’t have to do much with your legs, breasts or other superficial things.

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
