As a child I thought my grandmother made that up so I wouldn't feel bad because my cousin was prettier. Later I saw the truth in her words--outer beauty is nice but inner beauty is more important.

My Inside-Self and my Outside-Self
Are different as can be.
My Outside-self wears gingham smocks,
And very round is she,
With freckles sprinkled on her nose,
And smoothly parted hair,
And clumsy feet that cannot dance
In heavy shoes and square.
But, oh, my little Inside-Self--
In gown of misty rose
She dances lighter than a leaf
On blithe and twinkling toes;
Her hair is blowing gold, and if
You chanced her face to see,
You would not think she could belong
to staid and sober me!
I look just like my mother.
I'm the image of Aunt Bee.
My nose if like my father's,
But I want to look like me.
Some Things Don't Change
Cathy (looking at photo album): "Look how pretty I was then. I thought I was so ugly."
Mom: "I told you you were pretty, Cathy!"
Cathy: "I know you did . . . But I wouldn't listen. I though you were just being my mother. I let insecurity control me and ruin my youth! Look at me, I was a beautiful little girl."
Mom: "Just as you are now!"
Cathy: "Now?? Oh, please. Now I'm old and wrinkly!"
Mom (thinking to her self): "A mother's brilliance only truly shines in retrospect."
from Any Man of Mine
Any man of mine better be proud of me
Even when I'm ugly he still better love me.
And I can be late for a date that's fine
But he better be on time.
Any man of mine'll say it fits just right
When last year's dress is just a little too tight.
And anything I do or say better be okay
When I have a bad hair day.
Well any man of mine better disagree
When I say another woman's lookin' better than me.
And when I cook him dinner and I burn it black
He better say, mmmm, I like it like that.
Please Look a Little Deeper
Please don't judge me by my face.
By my religion or my race.
Please don't laugh at what I wear.
Or how I look or do my hair.
Please look a little deeper--
Way down deep inside.
And although you may not see it.
I have a lot to hide.
Behind my clothes the secrets lie.
Behind my smile, I softly cry.
Please look a little deeper.
And maybe you will see,
The lonely little girl
That lives inside of me.
Please listen carefully to her--
She'll show that she's insecure.
Please try to be a friend to her
And show her that you care.
Please just get to know her
And maybe you will see
That if you just look deep enough.
You'll find the real me.
from Not Pretty Enough
Am I not pretty enough? Is my heart too broken?
Do I cry too much? Am I too outspoken?
Don't I make you laugh? Should I try it harder?
Why do you see right through me?
I live, I breathe, I let it rain on me,
I sleep, I wake, I try hard not to break.
I crave, I love, I've waited long enough,
I try as hard as I can.
I laugh, I feel, I make believe it's real,
I fall, I freeze, I pray down on my knees.
I hope, I stand, I take it like a man,
I try as hard as I can.
Why do you see, why do you see,
Why do you see right through me?
- Age 3:
She looks at herself and sees a Queen.
- Age 8:
She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.
- Age 15:
She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Step-Sister
(Mom, I can't go to school looking like this!)
- Age 20:
She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" but decides to fix herself up as best she can and go out anyway.
- Age 30:
She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" and decides she doesn't have time to fix it but she's going out anyway.
- Age 40:
She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" but says, "At least I'm clean" and goes out anyway.
- Age 50:
She looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes wherever she wants to go.
- Age 60:
She looks at herself and thinks of all those who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore and goes out and conquers the world.
- Age 70:
She looks at herself and sees wisdom, laughter, and ability, goes out and enjoys life.
- Age 80:
She doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.
. . . Maybe we should all grab that purple hat earlier.
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.
And the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.

I know from experience there's something terribly flawed about people who are tattooed above the little something Johnny had done in the Navy, even though that's also a bad sign.

from Pippi Longstocking
The children came to a perfume shop. In the show window was a large jar of freckle salve, and beside the jar was a sign which read: DO YOU SUFFER FROM FRECKLES?
"What does the sign say?" asked Pippi. She didn't read very well because she didn't want to go to school as other children did.
"It says 'Do you suffer from freckles?'" said Annika.
"Does it indeed," said Pippi thoughtfully.
"Well a civil question deserves a civil answer. Let's go in."
She opened the door and entered the shop, quickly followed by Tommy and Annika. An elderly lady stood back of the counter. Pippi went right up to her. "No," she said decidedly.
"What is it you want," asked the lady.
"No," said Pippi once more.
"I don't understand what you mean," said the lady.
"No I don't suffer from freckles," said Pippi.
Then the lady understood but she took one look at Pippi and burst out, "But my dear child, your whole face is covered with freckles!"
"I know it," said Pippi, "but I don't suffer from them. I love them. Good morning."
What's Prettier Than Freckles?
An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo. Lots of children were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws.
"You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!" a girl in the line said to the little fella. Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head.
His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles," she said, while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful."
The boy looked up, "Really?"
"Of course," said the grandmother. "Why just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles."
The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face, and softly whispered, "Wrinkles."
