She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful,

for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for that sparkle in her eyes when

she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to

make other people smile even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for

something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.

—F. Scott Fitzgerald

entire generation of young people were able to express themselves through what they wore.

--Clavin Klein

Beauty without intelligence is a masterpiece painted on a napkin.


There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.

—R. Buckminster Fuller

It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.

—F. Scott Fitzgerald

Nature makes boys and girls lovely to look upon so they can be tolerated until they acquire some sense.

When girls feel bad about their looks, 60 percent avoid normal daily activities like raising their hand in class or even going to the doctor.

—Mandy Moore
