Diamonds and Roses

From Instructions by Neil Gaiman:

Do not be jealous of your sister.
Know that diamonds and roses
are as uncomfortable when they tumble from
one’s lips as toads and frogs:
colder, too, and sharper, and they cut.

    That. Was. Lovely. Thank you for sharing it.

    Have you ever read the book Jennifer Murdley’s Toad? The fairytale you reference features prominently in it,and it’s all about acceptance of yourself even when you’re not “pretty.” It’s for young adults, but everyone should read it! (cough, not that Bruce Coville is my hero or anything… er, except he is).
