How vain all our glories and all our pains.
Unless true sense preserve what beauty gains.
Beauty cannot chase small pox or chase old age away.
Time will take its toll on beauty
... Frail beauty must decay.
Curled or uncurled locks will turn to Grey.
Only good sense and good humor can prevail.
Where anger and screams and tears fail.
Merit lasts long and it more powerful.
Beauties in vain, their pretty eyes roll.
Beauty strikes the eyes but merit wins the soul. -Pope (Clarissa's speech in "rape of the lock") Ps- this is why I love literature so much <3
"You need to shake it up a little, be a little lazy or a little slutty, make a mistake and never go look back and say 'I wish I have been more uptight' and stop always saying what everyone wants to hear, tell someone off. I want you to fall in love, it has to be somebody who's worthy, find a man who loves you just a little more than you love him. Never make yourself small for anyone. Be your own person"
