    “We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.”

    My father is exceedingly fond of claiming responsibility for his children’s looks and brains, and we’ve learned not to groan (too loudly) when he says, “The kids got their good looks and their brains from me. Their mom still has hers.”

    Sometimes looks work in a strange way. My eldest is beautiful. I know, parents are always prejudiced in favour of their kids, but she is. the little one is cute, but her sister is beautiful.
    And she looks exactly like her dad. Not that I married an ugly dude, but he’s not somebody they suggested take up modelling.
