The Velveteen Rabbit is a classic children’s book written by Margery Williams and illustrated by William Nicholson. It follows the story of a plush rabbit’s desire to become real, a feat accomplished through the love of the boy who owns him. In this passage, the skin horse tells the rabbit of what it feels like to “become” real.
"He said, '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 the 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.'"
