Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.



It was my observation that the waifishly pretty girls of the world got everything, including sympathy, it seemed, and mints, and that if you were ugly you always had to prove that you didn't have an ugly personality to match and so one must develop charm and an easy pleasant interest in others, but I had decided a long time ago that this was too much trouble to go through with every idiot that came along.
