When you get what you want in your struggle for self, and the world makes you a queen for a day, just go to a mirror and look at yourself, and see what that gal has to say.
For it isn’t your husband or family or friend whose judgement upon you must pass. The gal whose verdict counts most in the end is the one staring back from the glass.
Some people may think you a straight-shooting chum and call you a person of place. But the gal in the glass says you’re only a bum if you can’t look her straight in the face.
She’s the gal to please, never mind all the rest, for she’s with you clear up to the end. And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test, if the gal in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years and get pats on the back as you pass. But your final reward will be heartaches and tears if you’ve cheated the gal in the glass.
