“To look almost pretty is an acquisition of higher delight to a girl who has been looking plain the first fifteen years of her life than a beauty from her cradle can ever receive.”
“Of course you’re not pretty like Phoebe. You’re pretty in your own way. That is the best thing about women. Each one has her own way about her.”
As a person who struggles with self confidence, this quote means a lot to me. It is difficult not to compare yourself with others, especially if you see them in a way you wish you saw yourself. And while this is difficult to do, it is important to remember that we are all unique. It would be pretty boring if we all looked and acted the same. But we are who we are, and it is who we are that makes us beautiful.
