"It is a remarkable thing how full of illusion is the notion that beauty is an advantage. A beautiful woman says all sorts of foolishness; you listen and do not hear any foolishness - what you hear seems to you wisdom itself. She says and does common things; to you it seems lovely. Even when she does not say stupid or common things but is simply beautiful, you are convinced that she is miraculously wise and moral."

- Leo Tolstoy, "The Kreutzer Sonata"


That quote is SO dead-on for me. Agree or disagree with it?

I disagree. Because I've known some beautiful women here on Answers whose physical beauty I was unaware of when I began communicating with them. Did their words suddenly become stupid when I saw that they were physically lovely? I don't think so.

Tolstoy was actually a bit of a misogynist. I wouldn't take his thoughts on women too seriously.
