About Beauty and Brains

Raram facit misturam cum sapientia forma
“We have Petronius’s Satyricon to blame for this canard, literally “beauty and wisdom are rarely found together.” The myth of ‘beautiful but dumb’ is destroyed by university teachers each time they look up from their notes. What they see is a lecture hall filled with intelligent and attractive students. What the students see may be another matter.”
— Eugene Ehrlich, Amo, Amas, Amat and More.
