So many people miss out on true talent because they can’t get past a look. At the end of the day, losing weight was easy, but finding talent? Now that’s hard.

The first question I ask myself when something doesn’t seem to be beautiful is why do I think it’s not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason.

I look foreword to an America which will not be afraid of grace and beauty.

I love pretty things; and I hate to look in the glass and see something that isn’t pretty. It makes me feel so sorrowful—just as I feel when I look at any ugly thing. I pity it because it isn’t beautiful.

One can dream so much better in a room where there are pretty things.

A fine dress on a homely maiden is never enough of a distraction. It can convey a sense of wealth and its accompanying attractions, but it can never truly compensate for a plain face.

Whatever is in any way beautiful hath its source of beauty in itself, and is complete in itself; praise forms no part of it. So it is none the worse nor the better for being praised.

An agreeable manner may set off handsome features, but can never alter plain ones.

I’m tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That’s deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?

It can be a real struggle to accept that sometimes appearance can be more important than talent or intelligence.

No matter how big the glam squad, or how dramatic the dress, sometimes things just don’t work out.

Just because you are blind, and unable to see my beauty doesn’t mean it does not exist.
