Half Her Beauty is Her Brain

Posted on

I've been spending a lot of time in London lately thanks to interviews and exams, but I can't complain because a) for the most part, I thoroughly enjoy university interviews as it gives me a chance to meet interesting academics, and b) I always hit up Five Guys to reward myself afterwards...

One of my favourite books is The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald (I may have picked it up because I liked the title). Fitzgerald wrote some gems about society and beauty in this novel, but I thought I'd share the quote that intrigued me to read it:

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.”
