Ugliness And Beauty

Courtesy: Christian Godfrey - positive-club

A pig contemplated his image in the water of a pond. He found he looked so ugly that he started to cry, and his tears soon obscured his image. Then he heard a voice from above:

"No creature is more beautiful than you are, pig," it said.

"That's not true!" cried the pig. "I am even uglier than a toad!"

"But there's nothing more beautiful than a toad," the voice replied.

"You see! You're contradicting yourself! A toad and I can't both be the most beautiful of creatures at the same time."

"All my creatures are most beautiful to my eyes, and all at the same time," the voice said.

It was then that the pig understood he was talking to God. He looked again at his reflection in the water, and this time his heart felt light and there was a smile on his face.

Ugliness and beauty are not consistent qualities: even among people not everyone agrees what constitutes beauty and what doesn't.

Both ugliness and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.

"Even if we travel the world in search of beauty, we must first have it in ourselves before we can find it."

Ralph Waldo Emerson
