Heard about anyone risking their life to save a beautiful woman lately? Everyday in the news we hear about beautiful women being attacked, killed, and mutilated, but we never hear about someone getting hurt trying to protect them do we? Have you ever wondered why Prince Charming, King Kong and Quasi Modo defended the woman they found most beautiful? Indeed, they might seem outright insane by today's standards. Today we're taught beauty is at best a happy accident, that it has no real value, that it is merely a genetic vestige of our caveman past, and that to take it seriously is nothing more than scientific ignorance, superficial flattery of oneself or others, and always in bad taste. It's no wonder then that those who posses it are so visciously attacked is it? And that no one ever defends them these days. Prince Charming, King Kong and Quasi modo were willing to die for beauty because they knew that you can't live without it - without it, they just wouldn't be themselves. It turns out that beauty tells us all what we really are. That is its natural purpose, not sex or selling, but self-realization. We all find beautiful exactly what we need to, whatever will help us in life to be who we want to be or to achieve what we want to achieve it is that thing that we will inevitably find beautiful. We don't need crystal balls or fortune tellers, psycho-analysts or teachers to guess at what beauty shows us every day: how to be yourself. In a way, it's like we are all of us so uniquely special that we each get our own little omniscient beauty god telling us exactly what we need and what we should do. It's so simple really: move towards what you find beautiful and you will be fine. It's always true and works for everyone. What then if we choose to despise beauty and destroy its wisdom? Our aforementioned heroes were willing to risk their lives rather than let it go. Do you think you can live without beauty? Well, unless you are already loving and defending the thing you find most beautiful, then you are already risking your life to find out, aren't you?
