“What's the whole point of being pretty on the outside when you’re so ugly on the inside?”
Jess C. Scott, I'm Pretty

Margery Williams Bianco
“You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby.
But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit

“You may be married to a star, but that doesn't mean they'll treat you like one.”
Jess C. Scott, I'm Pretty

“Flowers that are offered for the dead, do not know the difference of where their beauty will be placed, they do not say, "This is not a palace" or "This is not a garden"; they just are. They are just beautiful, without giving regards to whether they are placed on a grave or in a castle. Flowers are just beautiful, whether they grow by the wayside or in a manicured garden. If we were all like flowers, then we would all be beautiful, with no regards to why or how. We just are. We are just beautiful.”
C. JoyBell C.

“You will never overcome your self righteousness if you continue to believe that God prefers you over other people. The moment you feel entitled is the moment you feel superior and distance yourself from a humble heart that believes God knows what he is doing.”
Shannon L. Alder

Richelle E. Goodrich
“I don’t think of you as a typical beauty. I never once did.

To me your hair mimics asphalt more than the lustrous feathers of ravens. Comparing your eyes to heavenly lights seems a stretch when they are the common color of dirt. I can’t imagine you as a tall, pole-slender image of models; your God-given shape is the exact opposite.

But I never cared about those pointless things anyway.
What good have such trivial attributes ever done the world?

When I look at you, I see you—or in other words, all of you that really matters. I see a kind heart and compassionate arms. I see a patient, gentle spirit abounding with love towards all of God’s creatures. I see the perfect blend of humility and strength of character. I see a wise intellect as well as an endearing sense of humor. I see all the qualities that make you the person I love, regardless of the bodily package you’re wrapped up in.

So forgive me if I don’t think you’re beautiful, because I find you to be far superior to that worthless and pointless nonsense the world calls beauty.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold

Ashley Asti
“I
don’t
want
to wait
until I’m 73 to
embrace
my body.
To look back
and think of
my beauty:
How did I
miss it?

Let’s not wait another moment.”
Ashley Asti, Dear Sisters: Your Nature is to Bloom

“In such a world where girls are always raised on beauty alone and the way they have to be anything to impress their surroundings or fit in. I will teach my daughter how to always know her worth ; cause knowing her worth will guide her where to settle , whom to fall for , and what to defend.
I will tell her how beautiful her soul is, how attractive her laugh is, how sexy her intelligence is , and how her heart is kind and soft to be always loved .I want to teach her how to fall in love with everything she is, before anyone else may do …”
Samiha Totanji

“The song you write may be beautiful, the research you conceive may be beautiful, but you are the real beauty in life.”
Eric Maisel, The Van Gogh Blues: The Creative Person's Path Through Depression

“Satisfaction with who you are, what you looks must come first from within. You should feel good about yourself inside and out, and believe in the natural beauty you possess. Beauty prescribe attitude and good behavior, besides our face is the map of our soul.”

“I just wanted to remind us:
every shape and way of being
is tempting,
not because it’s your job to be
desirable,
but because the form you come in
was ordered up by God
and that’s
madly rousing.”
Ashley Asti, The Moon and Her Sisters

Richelle E. Goodrich

“I believe you do not deserve words like “anti-wrinkle” and “anti-aging.” Your experience as a woman is much too rich to be rewritten in favor of artificial youthfulness.”
Ashley Asti, Dear Sisters: Your Nature is to Bloom

“Maybe the most revolutionary
thing she could have said
when I asked her in a letter
to describe
what she looks like
was,
"I like everything
about me.
I wouldn't change
a thing.”
Ashley Asti, Your Nature Is to Bloom
