"The secret to being attractive, if one consults the past record of human experience, is remarkably simple. It is summarized in an aphorism from the Latin poet Ovid, who said, "To love, be lovable."
"A lovable person is someone who is natural, easy with himself or herself, radiating the simple, unaffected humanity that makes anyone truly attractive. [...]
"The shift in perception happens not by changing who you are but by seeing who you are and then shining it forth. If you were able to exhibit the full grandeur of your being, your whole life would be a romance, one long love story dedicated to ecstasy and joy. [...]
"Nothing is more beautiful than naturalness. It alone contains the mystery and allure that spark romance. [...]
"To be authentic, you have to be everything that you are, omitting nothing. Within everyone there is light and shadow, good and evil, love and hate. The play of these opposites is what constantly moves life forward. [...]
"Being desirable means being comfortable with your own ambiguity.
"The ultimate ambiguity that each of us expresses is not that we can be both good and bad, loving and unloving, but that we are spirit and flesh at the same time. Nothing could be more ambiguous than this, or more alluring."
-Excerpt from "The Path to Love" by Deepak Chopra
