beauty, as for many other things in life

You have to enjoy power, have a certain ruthlessness, to accept the beauty and not mourn the fact that it overshadows everything else. As with any exaggerated trait that sets you apart and makes you exceptionaland enviable, and hateableto accept your beauty, to accept its effect on others, to play with it, to make the best of it, you’re well advised to develop a sense of humor.

Philip Roth, American Pastoral

meu deus.
