Pity and compassion with honesty and beauty would be a real knockout

I looked up truth the other day also. The word has a lot to do with seeing clearly, and with things that are honest and beautiful. Perhaps I should change my name to Ruth Truth. The combination of pity and compassion with honesty and beauty would be a real knockout. People might not see me come into a room but they’d feel like there was something unusual in the air – I have a lot of fantasy dreams, I guess, because I’m by myself so much. I’m not bored too often, though. I have my entire life to think about. I have the ghosts to order away from my room. Ruth Truth. It has a nice ring to it.
