The Velveteen Rabbit
He said, "You become.
It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who
or have sharp edges,
or who have to be carefully kept.
Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been
and your eyes drop out
and you get loose in the joints
and very shabby.
But these things don't matter at all,
because once you are Real you can't be ugly,
Except to people who don't understand.
*This isn't my writing, it is from the Novel the Velveteen, however, I was just reading it and this page made me stop by how beautiful it was. I thought everyone needed to hear it :)
