"The Trouble Is, You Had Confidently Expected A Happy Outcome Only To Have Your Hopes Dashed. Consequently, You Are Too Low-spirited At Present To Appreciate That I Am Perfect And Therefore Cannot Be Detestable."She Gazed At Him For A Moment, Up And Down, Then Up Again.

Quotes About Insecurity And Beauty

Probably the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought. Both originated in envy, thrived in insecurity, and ended in disillusion. In equating physical beauty with virtue, she stripped her mind, bound it, and collected self-contempt by the heap. She forgot lust and simple caring for. She regarded love as possessive mating, and romance as the goal of the spirit. It would be for her a well-spring from which she would draw the most destructive emotions, deceiving the lover and seeking to imprison the beloved, curtailing freedom in every way." -- Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye" - Author: Toni Morrison
