-->'''Anthony:''' What was your crime?
-->'''Sweeney:''' My wife was beautiful.
-->'''Anthony:''' Why, if that be a crime...
-->'''Sweeney:''' A heinous one in this same town you call home. For here there are men who cannot look upon beauty, and not defile it; who scratch and tear at virtue's shining face with fumbling hands until they have made it as ugly as their own. Two such men there were -- two upright men -- a beadle and a judge, who tried with every flattery, every temptation, to win my wife to their desires. But she, bright angel, would have none of them. So -- then they worked their devilish practices. Falsely, I was charged with petty theft, arrested -- by the beadle, and brought straight to court before that same judge, who, in accents grave, sentenced me to transportation for life, hoping that in my absence my good wife would fall.

''[But] remember we're talking about happiness here, not success. For one, attractive people have the same self-esteem problems the ugly people do. Like money, attractiveness is relative and if you're hotter than your friends, at that stage you start comparing yourself to people in the media.

''[And] you know how when the hot girl at the bar tells an unfunny joke, all the guys laugh anyway? Or when the office stud makes a mistake, the female boss laughs it off? Attractive people live in a world where most feedback they get is bullshit. The compliments mean nothing--they've learned that's just the sound people make when they walk by. That's why studies show they tend to dismiss the genuine compliments they get in other areas (their work, personality, sense of humor, creativity) because it gets lumped in with the same counterfeit flattery they've been getting their whole lives.''
