why is it that every human puts the beauty of physical appearance on an exalted pedestal over the true character of the person?

This illusive question has been eluding my perception from a long time...

The exquisite outward appearance outstrips the inner purity and honesty quite intangibly in this mundane world.From the ages of begone era beauty has been deified and worshipped by even erudite and ancient folks.Beautiful women have always been the occupants of the throne in the altars of eminent greatness and also reigned the hearts of millions of men from time immemorial.The ethereal attraction of beauty has held people enchanted in its clasp and wars have been fought and men have died for the sake of some imbecile beauty.But why isnt that no war yet been fought for the one who was ugly yet intelligent?

My inept gleaning of the truth has lead only to the painful acceptance of the inevitable answer in my 20 year existence in this terraqueous orb:(
I am not innately beautiful...on the contarary am appallingly plain....yet i love the way i am. Wars will not be fought for me but i shall fight my battles to get my answers.And finally if i dont get my answer i shall wail like a banshee lamenting the death of sensibility.

Intelligence is beauty but beauty is not intelligence.

I remember a murphy's law which states "Beauty goes skin deep but uglinees hits the bones"...
@nivya
Its a misconception that cleopatra was beautful.... and Celopatra was an able queen.. She was intelligent, she had marc Antony defer the taxes for her kingdom. Prof Curie and Cleopatra are the two sides of the coin. And you can use a coin only if it has both sides right....?
@Michelle
There's another murphy's law which i wanna quote.... "Beauty and intelligence are inversely propotional"

@nivya
Murphy's rep huh.... Nice title. Now your question puts me in the zone of discomfort. How i look and how i dont generally depends on the perspective to the person who sees. And how i look to myself is something which is independent of others. So there can be a thousand ways in which i can be seen good , bad and ugly name it and u will see it that way. Cose its dependent on the way u look a it. Purinjidho??

PS
1) If your referin to me as murphy's rep was in a sarcastic sense.... I had taken it in a way which is exactly opposite...
2) I was in the zone of discomfort becasue there just no single question for your answer.
3) There are much more better things to discuss apart from my looks i presume.
4) If u havent read murphy's laws do read it... It will defn make a good read.

You know what... This world keeps telling us what we are and we are not..and we blindly belive it.. we never dare to realize that what we are is merely what we think...

Probably because there has been no universal understanding of what is beauty. Or perhaps it is genetically imprinted in the brain of humans just like the genetic imprint of specimens of other lower phylae, wherein a new born is endowed with certain preprogrammed set of activities. Probe, you may find the answer or your probing may lead to further research and who knows in future the human race may find the answer and ablish beauty.
