QOTD - Beauty

After considerable searching, I found this, variously attributed to Edgar Allen Poe and Francis Bacon:
There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.
The Poe version was in slightly more modern English which makes me think he was quoting Bacon. Mmmmm Bacon.

This observation has very broad application as anyone who ever owned a sports car will attest.

The front end of a Studebaker Hawk always makes me think of a catfish mouth....Favorite Car, Favorite Fried Food. That's strangeness.
