F. Scott Fitzgerald Quotes: She Was About Twenty Four Rosemary

She Was About Twenty-four, Rosemary Guessed - Her Face Could Have Been Described In Terms Of Conventional Prettiness, But The Effect Was That It Had Been Made First On The Heroic Scale With Strong Structure And Marking, As If The Features And Vividness Of Brow And Coloring, Everything We Associate With Temperament And Character Had Been Molded With A Rodinesque Intention, And Then Chiseled Away In The Direction Of Prettiness To A Point Where A Single Slip Would Have Irreparably Diminished Its Force And Quality. With The Mouth The Sculptor Had Taken Desperate Chances - It Was The Cupid's Bow Of A Magazine Cover, Yet It Shared The Distinction Of The Rest.
