WHY NOT TO HAVE PLASTIC SURGERY

VAN GOGH, 1882
LITHOGRAPH
SORROW

"I have to listen to her gossip, as I'm with her all the time, but I don't worry about that. I"ve never had so much help as from this ugly and faded creature. For me she's beautiful and I find in her exactly what I need. Life has marched over her body. Pain and visitations have marked it. Now I can get something out of it."

--Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Anthon van Rappard

  3. I guess I draw parallels to the Church from this... That if she was superficially flawless, pristine, and manicured--it would do nothing but induce despair, because she would then cease to be human...
