The human mind can bear plenty of reality but not too much unintermittent gloom.Margaret Drabble
Luxury spreads its ample board before their eyes; but they are excluded from the banquet. plenty revels over the fields; but they are starving in the midst of its abundance: the whole wilderness has blossomed into a garden; but they feel as reptiles that infest it.washington irving

On the movie Monster: "I confess I went into the movie ready to dislike Miss Theron. I'm sick of newspaper articles detailing the amount of time, talent and technical wizardry required to turn some silver-screen beauty into an average-looking woman.

There is, however, no advantage in reflections on the past further than may be of service to the present.
