Despre (dez)avantajele frumusetii feminine, prin microscopul-bisturiu al lui Michel Houellebecq:

„Without beauty a girl is unhappy because she has missed her chance to be loved. People do not jeer at her, they are not cruel to her, but it is as if she were invisible–no eyes follow her as she walks. People feel uncomfortable when they are with her. They find it easier to ignore her. A girl who is exceptionally beautiful, on the other hand, who has something which too far surpasses the customary seductive freshness of adolescence, appears somehow unreal. Great beauty seems invariably to portend some tragic fate.”

„At fifteen, Annabelle was one of those rare beauties who can turn any man’s head–regardless of age or physical fitness. She was one of the few who could send pulses racing in young and middle-aged alike and cause old men to groan in regret simply by walking down the street. She quickly noticed the silence that followed her appearance in a cafe or classroom, but it would be years before she completely understood it. At the school in Crecy-en-Brie, it was common knowledge that she and Michel were ‘together,’ but even if they hadn’t been, no boy would have dared try. The terrible predicament of a beautiful girl is that only an experienced womanizer, someone cynical and without scruple, feels up to the challenge. More often than not, she will lose her virginity to some filthy lowlife in what proves to be the first step in an irrevocable decline.”
