Várias versões têm evoluído ao longo dos anos, por vezes por acidente, por vezes propositadamente (como no caso do humor).

Grandpa, am I pretty?
You are the most beautiful girl in the world.
You're just saying that.
No! I'm madly in love with you and it's not because of your brains or your personality.

The thing to look for is a girl whose calf circumference is very similar to her waist measurement and there you go.... she just forgot to ever look in a mirror.

down through recorded history human beings have said a lot of things worth repeating. some of my favorite things are quotations. but a philosophy teacher once said to me that the problem with conventional wisdom is that it's immensely contradictory. for example, using conventional wisdom we might say "look before you leap," but conventional wisdom also tells us that "he who hesitates is lost." so i was thinking it might be possible to have a debate using only quotations. somebody could offer up a quotation and someone else could find an equally convincing quotation to the contrary. thought it might make an intersting format for debate. so, that being the premise, i'll get things started.

"I had come to these conclusions before ever I had entered his
room. An inspection of his chair showed me that he had been in
the habit of standing on it, which of course would be necessary
in order that he should reach the ventilator. The sight of the safe,
the saucer of milk, and the loop of whipcord were enough to
finally dispel any doubts which may have remained. The metallic
clang heard by Miss Stoner was obviously caused by her stepfa-
ther hastily closing the door of his safe upon its terrible occu-
pant. Having once made up my mind, you know the steps which
I took in order to put the matter to the proof. I heard the creature
hiss as I have no doubt that you did also, and I instantly lit the
light and attacked it.

Perhaps it is the language that chooses the writers it needs, making use of them so that each might express a tiny part of what it is.
