We may pretend

We may pretend that beauty is only skin deep, but Aristotle was right when he observed the ‘beauty is a far greater recommendation than any letter of introduction.'...After all, in fairy tales, the first stories most of us hear, the heroes are handsome, the heroines are beautiful, and the wicked sots are ugly. Children learn implicitly that good people are beautiful and bad people are ugly, and society restates that message in many subtle ways as they grow older.
