(from The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams)
"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day
"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."
"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become."
"It takes a long time."
"...but once you are Real you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always."
