Good Thoughts

We recently "updated" our Ménage À Trois bracelets*, and as we were preparing the listings on Etsy, our attention was drawn to the quote that has inspired us to make these.

"If you have good thoughts,
they will shine out of your face like sunbeams
and you will always look lovely."
     - Roald Dahl

This quote is from Roald Dahl's children's novel The Twits (in Dutch: De Griezels). In the full passage, the narrator explains that people with ugly thoughts, will always show this ugliness in the characteristics of their faces, whereas people with good thoughts can never be ugly, because the good thoughts are visible in their faces and make them look pretty. We were so impressed by this idea, that we tried to capture it in these bracelets.

What do you think of this quote; do you agree?
