the oscars this year blew my mind.  another speech given at a black women in hollywood luncheon that i could watch over and over again.

"beauty was not a thing that i could acquire or consume.  it was a thing that i just had to be.  and what my mother meant when she said 'you can't eat beauty,' is that you can't rely on beauty to sustain you.  what actually sustains us - what is fundamentally beautiful - is compassion.  for yourself, and for those around you.  that kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul."
