Faded Faces

“Don’t laugh at the spinsters, dear girls, for often very tender,
tragical romances are hidden away in the hearts
that beat so quietly under the sober gowns,
and many silent sacrifices of youth, health, ambition, love itself,
make the faded faces beautiful in God’s sight.”

Louisa May Alcott, 1832-1888
“Little Women”
