"It wasn't so much the personality, it was the 'but' that people always added when they talked about it. 'But she's got a lovely personality', they said. It was the lack of choice that rankled. No one had asked her, before she was born, whether she wanted a lovely personality or whether she'd prefer, say, a miserable personality but a body that could take size 9 in dresses. Instead, people would take pains to tell her that beauty was only skin-deep, as if a man ever fell for an attractive pair of kidneys".

Terry Pratchett, "Maskerade".

That sums it up nicely, I think. Everyone's shallow, even if its just a little bit.


Razors pain you; Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give;
Gas smells awful; You might as well live.

Dorothy Parker, 'Resumé'
