Good Looks Are A Substitute For The Best University

This is an axiom of Emerson's, allegedly, although I'm sure the idea is older than him.

Basically the idea is that you can educate yourself using available public resources and books to the same level or better than the university experience, but will do just as well if you are simply good looking.

Notable and successful "intellectuals" who have stated agreement with this idea are Ralph Waldo Emerson (duh), Stefan Zweig, and Ray Bradbury. These are off the top of my head, and I'm sure there are others.

How do you feel about this?

I attend a university and take courses (LOL but it's online) and really enjoy the academic environment, but I also very highly value looks. I think that, generally, both are equally viable, but suit different contexts.
