Anonymous said: Why do we confuse good looks with virtue?
Partly it is because of desire. When we desire a thing or a person we tend to project our own image of what is upon the thing of our desire. Also, we equate virtue with harmony and a person with harmonious features is seen as good. Yet, beauty of face does not signify virtue.
It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.
— Leo Tolstoy
