“But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.”

더는 망설이지 마 제발 내 심장을 거두어가 그래 날카로울수록 좋아 달빛조차도 눈을 감은 밤

Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid” (1837)

Andersen’s tale holds a special place in my heart. It is truly beautiful.

rigelography:

The witch tells the Little Mermaid: “Your tail will part and shrink into what humans call nice shapely legs but it will hurt just as if a sharp sword were passing through you. Every step you take will be like treading on a knife sharp enough to cause your blood to flow.” 
Every footstep felt as if she were walking on the blades and points of sharp knives, just as the witch had foretold. When the Little Mermaid finally stands face to face with her beloved prince, her new feet, which she has traded with her lovely voice, bleed. The prince does not notice it, and she does not complain.
- “The Little Mermaid”, Hans Christian Anderson
