Many of Fitzgerald’s writing illustrates romantic lyricism, determination, and glamour. Read these quotes from the life and work of Fitzgerald:
“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful deep down in her soul. She is beautiful.”
“You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have even known- and even that is an understatement.”
“For what it’s worth… it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or worst of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you like a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again.”
“I wish I had done everything on Earth with you.”
“I don’t ask you to love me always like this, but I ask you to remember somewhere inside of me there will always be the person I am tonight.”
“The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.”
“I don’t want to repeat my innocence, I want the pleasure of losing it again.”
“Things are sweeter when they’re lost. I know- because once I wanted something and I got it. It was the only thing I ever wanted badly, Dot, and when I got it it turned to dust in my hand.”
“A great social success is a pretty girl who plays her cards as carefully if she were plain.”
