Henry Rollins

Girls aren’t beautiful, they’re pretty. Beautiful is too heavy a word to assign to a girl. Women are beautiful because their faces show that they know they have lost something and picked up something else. ― Henry Rollins, Smile, You’re Traveling: Black Coffee Blues Part 3. (2.13.61 October 2000)
