Menorise; Saturday Sayings

"Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll;
charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul."

  4. I saw Moms comment about mother saying pretty is is pretty does and I got so sick of hearing that when I was growing up. I thought I was ugly and unwanted and that was her answer... but that said, in my old age I do believe that merit winsthe soul

  5. Hello, pretty design. The quote is so true, merit wins the soul. Enjoy your day!

  6. It's a lovely quote, but it seems that nowadays, prettiness gets more attention than merit of the soul. Unfortunately.

  7. Nice quote and design!
