“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. 

“You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often 

to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, 

or who have to be carefully kept.  

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 your 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.” 

– the Velveteen Rabbit
