Contemplations of Beauty

Physical beauty is considered a highly socialized concept. However, it emerged with us out of the ooze to help continue the species. Now a pretty face can be seen as literal money in the bank. As a result there is a great deal of competition among the fairer sex for “resources”…men. So there is the occational green eye monster, and no i dont mean Mike from Monsters Inc. Bertrand Russell, fellow Gemini, has a wonderful quote highlighting the futility of jealousy and I must share it. “If you desire glory, you may envy Napoleon. But Napoleon envied Caesar, Caesar envied Alexandar, Alexandar, I dare say, envied Hercules, who never existed. You cannot therefore get away from envy by means of success alone, for there will always be in history or legend some person even more successful than you are.” I specifically thank the amazing Nancy Etcoff’s Survival of the Prettiest for today’s beauty thought.
