"The definition of a beautiful woman is one who loves me."

-Sloan Wilson

I tell my wife everyday that she is beautiful. She smiles at me like I'm some kind of simpleton. I really don't understand the obsession with creating some perfect outward image. If someone pays you an honest compliment then it should suffice that you are indeed the positive thing that they say that you are.

Beauty is one of those things that really cannot be defined. If you doubt me, check out some of those forums and web sites where lewd men argue over which celebrity is the hottest.

And who is Sloan Wilson? He was a novelist. He wrote The Man In The Gray Flannel Suit among others. He served during World War II and died in 2003.
