"They were trying to save their souls - and who but a fool could fail to see that all that is the matter with their souls is that they had not been able to get a decent existence for their bodies?"

-Upton Sinclair, The Jungle, Ch. 23

“You don’t have to be pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked ‘female’.”
— Diana Vreeland
