    I cannot but admire those with good brains, and I would dearly love to have that of course.

    But then, being a woman, beauty is also very important, not just because I like that, but because, let's face it; it opens doors!

    Being a mature woman, I also feel I do not have to fit into anybody's rules any more, so I will happily break yours here and say with a straight face - i would love to have both beauty and brains!

      Thanks for the response, although it is very rare to find both of them together, one has to compromise with the other, but finding both together in a person is a jewel.

      As some say, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  I am a woman of mature age and I look at the pretty & beautiful girls/women in front of a camera on our {Aus) TV, and I marvel at how clever and brainy most of them are.

    Everyone has a brain but very few people are considered beautiful.
    I believe we tend to create these scenarios where it's always an "either or". Would you rather have love or money? Be smart or beautiful?
    Generally a happy life is a blending of multiple things.
    You can be beautiful and smart!
    You can be rich and have true love!
    The goal is to make the most of what you have to get what you want!

      Sadly, many people think in the OR mode.  They have an exclusionist and dichotomous mentality.  One can be beautiful and smart, religious and highly sexual, and rich and kind. Thank you, Mr. Dashing.

    I would prefer both. It's a blessing if anyone gets a person who is embodiment of the two. Further, I would articulate beauty into the pious innerself - that gets reflected through positive and noble attitude - and brain into talents and skills. The demand for both is enormous here, even gender discrimination is void as both women and men qualify this criteria of beauty and brain. With regard to meaning of both the essentials as such a woman with her beauty and brain can do wonders in and around her vicinity. But when we think of the articulated version of both, the society gets embellished with noble souls as their beauty add glamour to the spiritual aspect of the society whereas their brains help it develop materialistically.

    You know, I was considering that very thing recently, but then I forgot about it, so I'm glad that somebody else brought it up. After thinking about it, I'm going to have to go with beauty. Beauty comes in many forms and each person might have a slightly different view on what constitutes beauty, but the standard had better be met as far as I'm concerned. You don't want to have to deal with somebody that isn't at least well-proportioned.

    Wait though...well the more you deal with them there should be some signs of a brain I guess. Nobody goes looking for a brain though. It's probably a matter of percentages. A person doesn't have to have a whole brain. About one thirds of one meets the criteria for me, but only if beauty factors in heavily.

    An English poet has rightly said " Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder" But the with passage of time Beauty fades away. True beauty lies in the soul of a person not in the face. I could prefer brain over beauty because people who are brainy are admired worldwide.That is why in any beauty contest, they not only look for beauty, they also judge how brainy the contestant is?
