3 Sourced Quotes
I learned the truth at seventeen, That love was meant for beauty queens, And high school girls with clear skinned smiles, Who married young and then retired.
Dreams were all they gave for free to ugly duckling girls like me.
Those of us with ravaged faces, lacking in the social graces, desperately remained at home, inventing lovers on the phone.
Quote of the day
