    Your looks fade eventually.

    But, a beautiful heart is forever, isn't it? Tell me about the nice things you did today, the way you defend your friends, strangers, the way you treat everyone with as much patience and kindness that you do--not because they're beautiful, but because it's right. Take me around...

    as a child, it was not to judge people based on their looks and that has stuck with me since. Up until I was 20 I still payed some attention to good looks but these days I hardly care at all. These 'leagues' are just stupid. I've been attracted to people deemed by others both...

    I Think That Personality Is More Important Than
