"... She made me promise that I would wear eyeliner from that moment onwards - regardless of whether i ended up in a wheelchair or not. That way, she reasoned, I was sure to distinguish between what was really worth crying about, and what was not. I made and kept that promise, and it has after affected my dealings with men from that day on. Eyeliner has made me ruthless, unbreakable; it has kept me beyond the reach of emotional hurt or humiliation." Rana Kabbani, Vogue (March 2011)
