Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity to what we would have others think of us.” ― Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

“I could bend you with my finger and my thumb. A mere reed you feel in my hands. But whatever I do with this cage, I cannot get at you, and it is your soul that I want.”

rosettes:

1954:  Audrey Hepburn wears a wedding gown and veil in her role as Jo Stockton in Funny Face.  The photo was taken by David Seymour, who in 1947, helped found the first international cooperative photographic agency — Magnum.  The dance scene in which Audrey wears this costume was shot outdoors after weeks of torrential rain.  Audrey had nine pairs of white satin dancing shoes that were made in Paris that she had to continuously swap out as each became muddied beyond use.  “Here I’ve been waiting for twenty years to dance with Fred Astaire,” Audrey quipped, “and what do I get?  Mud in my eye!”

“I didn’t understand. After all that teasing, Ruth would decide that Tommy was the boy she liked most of all. They say girls are always mean to the boys they like, so maybe Ruth had liked him all along. Maybe I should have teased him too.”
