As I sit in the modern surroundings at my salon I can’t help but think about beauty. Scientists think beauty is a function of symmetry. Artists think beauty is related to truth. I think many things affect beauty. Goodness, having a purpose, and openness are reflected upon our faces as well as our souls. No amount of Botox can help the purposeless. No diet can fix meanness. Secrets will out in our wrinkles.
How important is beauty really? Does beauty outweigh intelligence in value? Is beauty more important than morality? If attractiveness is not that important, why do we spend so much money on becoming prettier? If it is not that important, why do we behave the way we do? Mostly, I think its laziness.
It is easier to tell if someone is beautiful than it is to notice if someone is smart or good. It is faster too. You do not need to take the time to get to know the person. You do not need to do anything but look. I think its time to look beyond the physical. Get to know people. It makes you prettier.
