Granted, I’m a pretty good-lookin’ woman in spite of my shortcomings, but I’ll tell you one thing, Jewel. Even if I was as ugly as a mud fence, I’d still be struttin’ my stuff. And that’s no goddamn lie. I don’t care who we are, or what we look like, we’ve still got something worth struttin’, and we should be proud of whatever the hell that something is. No matter what anybody says to us to the contrary.

"I hate hearing someone point out all their own insecurities. It’s like judging the ocean’s beauty by how many people have drowned in it. And it’s not even that simple is it? Because from the shoreline, you can’t truly appreciate the ocean’s beauty until you know what’s underneath the surface. The unimaginable depths, the creatures living in it, that’s what makes the ocean so magnificent." -Just Tom (Proof You’re Beautiful)
