Skin Deep

“Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.”
-Dorthy Parker
This quote means a lot to me, because my grandmother, who took care of me and protected me from the evils of the world as long as she could, would always tell me this. My mother was a horrid person on the inside, yet she was so beautiful appearance wise. I used to admire her beauty and hope that one day I would be just a beautiful. 

As I grew older ,I realized what this quote my grandmother told me really meant. For me it means is that your character makes you beautiful not your appearance. Just because you have a pretty face, slim figure, divine lips, and nice hair doesn't mean your beautiful, your only beautiful if you are character is beautiful.

I think that in today's world, the media focuses on appearance way to much. They have contorted the meaning of beautiful into something that is only based on what the eye can see.
