Tao Te Ching Chapter 2-1 No judgement
Everyone in the world knows what is beautiful, but it is just ugly.
Everyone knows what is good, but it is just no good. (Ch.2)
It is easy to agree. Lao Tzu is talking about the subjectivity of judgement.
When you judge, you create discontent. If you don't judge, everything is wonderful.
"C'mon, but a beautiful woman is a beautiful woman!", you might say.
I am not sure. See Mirror, mirror on the wall for a funny story about an ugly Japanese girl in a London night club.
