"I want to see beauty.In the ugly,in the sink,in the suffering,in the daily,in the all the days before I die,the moments before I sleep.."
"There are no people who are ugly.There are only people who are beautiful."
“Beauty is startling. She wears a gold shawl in the summer and sells seven kinds of honey at the flea market. She is young and old at once, my daughter and my grandmother. In school she excelled in mathematics and poetry. . . Beauty will dance with anyone who is brave enough to ask her.”
