14: "Generally, by the time you are 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... once you are Real you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always.” Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit
17: I have always been fascinated by mythology and rabbits have a very special presence in Myth and traditional story telling. In many mythic traditions, rabbits were archetypal symbols of femininity, associated with the lunar cycle, fertility, longevity, and rebirth. Digging deeper I find that their stories are also contradictory, paradoxical creatures: symbols of both cleverness and foolishness, of femininity and androgyny, of cowardice and courage, of rampant sexuality and virginal purity. In some cultural myth, Hare is the messenger of the Great Goddess, moving by moonlight between the human world and the realm of the gods; in other lands she is a goddess herself, wily deceiver and sacred world creator rolled into one. | Darlene Schaper
