I’m climbing Mount Everest because I can. Because, to be able to climb that high and see that kind of beauty that nobody ever sees, it’ll be a crime not to.
A cultivated woman, a woman of breeding and intelligence, can enrich a man’s life immeasurably. I have those things to offer and time doesn’t take them away. Physical beauty is a passing transitory possession but beauty of mind, richness of spirit, tenderness of the heart, I have all those things.
Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful Queen whose heart was broken in two. But even buried under ice and snow, love survives.
When you’re ugly, and someone loves you, you know they love you for who you are. Beautiful people never know who to trust.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
That’s the beauty of it. I wake up one day, I don’t know where I’m gonna’ end up or who I’m gonna’ meet.
Perhaps it is good to have a beautiful mind, but an even greater gift is to discover a beautiful heart.
