"She’s smiling. Is she happy? She looks happy. So, what does it matter? Let me tell you something. Not everything is as it seems."
— Betty Warren, Mona Lisa Smile (via itsherwhiteblankpage)


My teacher, Katherine Watson, lived by her own definition, and would not compromise that. Not even for Wellesley. I dedicate this, my last editorial, to an extraordinary woman who lived by example and compelled us all to see the world through new eyes. By the time you read this, she’ll be sailing to Europe, where I know she’ll find new walls to break down and new ideas to replace them with. I’ve heard her called a quitter for leaving, an aimless wanderer. But not all who wander are aimless. Especially not those who seek truth beyond tradition; beyond definition; beyond the image. - Mona Lisa Smile (2003)

Whatever you do, don’t put the boss’ wife next to your husband. She’s screwing him.
