The Velveteen Rabbit

THE VELVETEEN RABBIT
He said, “You become. It takes
a long time. That’s why it doesn’t
happen often to people who break
easily, or have sharp edges, or who
have to be carefully kept. Generally,
by the time you arc Real, most of
your hair has been loved off, and your
eyes drop out and you get loose in
the joints and very shabby. But these
things don’t matter at all, because once
you are Real you can’t be ugly, except
to people who don’t understand.
