Quotes: Beauty Equals Goodness
"Beauty is truth, truth beauty— that is all
Ye know on Earth, and all ye need to know."
John Keats, Ode on a Grecian Urn

"...And by the way, when the enemy leader is an attractive young woman, that's a good sign you're on the wrong side. If fiction has taught me anything, the righteous ones tend to be better looking. And generally white."

"These are the guys who invaded Bajor, raped and pillaged for a generation or two, and then up and left for no apparent reason. You can tell they're bad because they're ugly, their ships are ugly and the space station they left behind is really ugly. The whole reason for the invasion seems to be that they couldn't stand a green and blue planet so close to their own, so they mined it until it was as brown and dull as everything they were used to. They could have also just been grumpy that their grossly oversized neck/shoulder veins/bones made it impossible to turn their heads. They eventually got their own planet bombed back into the stone age, so that probably cheered them up."

It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.

He's of stature somewhat low—
Your hero always should be tall, you know.
Charles Churchill

"They say inner beauty is important. But not nearly as important as outer beauty."
Ellen DeGeneres, for Covergirl

EVERY OCTOPUS IS PRECOIUS BUT IF THERE IS A BAD ONE IT IS BADDY! YOU CAN TELL THAT HE IS BAD BECAUSE HE IS THE UGLYEST JUST LIKE PEOPLE.

Sakuya: (Referring to Eirin) Who are you?
Remilia: This is the villain, Sakuya. I knew it at once because that's definitely a villain's face.
Eirin: What a cruel thing to say.

I don't see any reasons why would no one pick Malik, he's kinda old but still pretty good looking.

"There is an invariable rule in men's battles, it states: 'An ugly, macho guy can never beat an intelligent, popular, slender and handsome hero.' Your fate was sealed when you showed up with your ugly face."
Dark Schneider, Bastard!!!!

"Yeah, I went with the "horrible-looking monsters are the bad guys" assumption. Turns out that one's pretty safe most of the time."

"Why is it that super-heroes are always so good looking?"

"Only bad witches are ugly."
Glinda the Good Witch, The Wizard of Oz

Blossom: This is bad. He's clearly an evil monster. A monkey that talks, plus he has a dark aura! And he stinks. So since I'm wearing pink, I'm a righteous transforming heroine that defeats villains! This is Japanese common sense.

"If she were good, she wouldn't be so ugly."
Jake the Dog, Adventure Time

Edmond Bateman: Maybe if a man looks ugly, he does ugly things.
Dr. Vollin: You are saying something profound.
