Beautiful brainy answer?

Do you know the motto of Miss Universe?

The motto of the pageant is Beauty with a purpose.

Question-If you could live forever, would you and why?

“I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were ever supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever.” –Miss Alabama, in the 1994 Miss Universe contest, (when asked if she would want to live forever)

Dear friend, can you help me in understanding what exactly she wished to convey?

My mother tongue is not English.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    I would imagine that she was quoting the bible,’ And man should live for threescore years and ten!.’

      I agree because Bible says 70 yrs is the limit.
      But God has His plans to be generous to extend His Grace on deserving people.

    This is hilarious, dear Philo. In her convoluted style, she was trying to say that since the Creator, in her opinion, has not designed us to live forever, than she wouldn’t want to contradict His plans. As to Beauty with a Purpose, I wonder what that purpose might be…

      Thank you Dolly.
      Agree.
      Sometimes the question baffles the candidates, which only causes the candidate to blabber and fail to convey what one wishes to convey.

        Nobody expects them to be smart, I suspect. The motto itself is ambiguous: what does it mean, ‘Beauty with a purpose’? What is the purpose of beauty and does beauty have to have a purpose?

          Yes.

          After you pointed about the motto-‘ Beauty with a purpose’…I started rethinking.

          Suppose hypothetically think that ..there is no beauty….that means there is no purpose too!

          Almost depriving the ones, who are described as ‘ugly’ of their role & purpose in the society.

          Strange are the ways…humans treat each other.Hmm….

          Thank you Dolly.
