We'll be having a somewhat disappointing piece of news regarding Rambling On soon. In that spirit, here's a Quote/Picture/Video on the subject of disappointment.
Carl Jung was not a ladies man
A particularly beautiful woman is a source of terror. As a rule, a beautiful woman is a terrible disappointment.
Settle down, Carl Jung. What he says, while not a rule, is true more often than I'd like it to be. I don't blame the beautiful women themselves though. It's the influences around them that make them think that physical beauty is more important than it actually is. In fact, though this quote is too often true, it's the men that are the terrible people in the situation, not the women. A beautiful woman has to decipher if people like (or love) them for who they are not what they look like, and that isn't easy. It's the people on the outside who judge based on beauty, and use that beauty to their advantage, that are usually to blame.
It got through Buckner!
