Hell yeah beauty is common dude. Lots of people are born with a pretty face. Lots of people have nice bodies. I can walk outside in any direction and point out dozens of men and women who I believe a good portion of people would believe are beautiful/pretty/whatever you want to call it.
Essentially though when I say beauty is common though I'm asking a beautiful person: "So what else do you got?" After all seeing the sheer number of pretty people that are out there what makes someone think they can rest on that attribute alone? Why should I be impressed?
There's my take on it anyway. Really didn't word it the best but I'm not about to go back and revise it.
I think we are too easily deceived by the external, by appearances, by the tangible. True beauty is everywhere. It radiates from inward. Not a function of appearance (well of course it is, since outer is a reflection of the inner to some degree - talking rhetorically). My view is those inwardly tumultuous, and whose mind drags them from pillar to post, often fail to see beauty in a transcendental light.
