Another Thing Of Beauty
There is this idea in England that those who take good care of themselves, who are always reasonably well groomed and therefore become good-looking are shallow. This is such a preposterous piece of miserable crap that it is not worth addressing in any considerable depth; suffice to say I do not know an English (or indeed British) man who does not admire French women or Italian women or Spanish women for their seemingly innate capability to look reasonably good, no matter what nature bestowed upon them. Do you know why people are attracted to beauty? Because beauty is the promise of happiness. Now do yourself a favour and read the superb The Architecture of Happiness.
