Robert Johnson on love and beauty

She: Understanding Feminine Psychology by Robert A. Johnson

I once saw a film [The Enchanted Cottage?] in which two horribly disfigured people in an institution fell in love with each other. Through the magic of fantasy each became infinitely beautiful to the other and a love affair went on between these two handsome, beautiful people. At the end of the movie, the camera blurred back to show the two originally disfigured faces; but the audience knew where they had been; they had seen the god and goddess within, which were stronger than the outer reality of disfigurement.
