To him who looks upon the world rationally, the world in its turn presents a rational aspect. The relation is mutual.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

People expect a lot more from someone they think looks interesting. It's a burden.
I want to be an inspirational model. I want people to look at me and say, 'Wow, she looks healthy.'
