“Beauty connotes humanity. We call a natural object beautiful because we see that its form expresses fitness, the perfect fulfillment of function.”

Theodore Cook

In church on Sunday, all the chics had to stand up, put their hands on their heart and state that they are beautiful. Was quite difficult for most of them, I figure they don't see themselves as "perfect fulfillment of function".

Its funny that Im replying your comment right after Ive ranted about something related to the issue.Lakini, its interesting what they did at your church. I'm one of those people who find communal proclamations (If thats what theyre called)kinda corny but yeah, many people , even men dont see themselves as the perfect fulfillment of function.We're all here for a purpose and its in fulfilling it that God truly does make us beautiful...hope that doesnt sound too..urrrm, I forget the word;)
