I wpold choose brain because if you have good brain you can be who ever you wanted.But if you are beatiful and no brain then your beauty is useless.

Hi,i'm not good at english,i hope you can help me to make the mistakes right.thanks a lot~~ i wanna choose brain too,becouse beauty will disappear as the time gone and there must be many women who are more beautiful than you and everyone has his or her definition about beauty. but a good brain can give you more wealth and experience as the time gone.of course,if you have the two in the meanwhile,all you have to do is to thanks for god and use full of them.

I'd rather have brains than beauty. Beauty fades but intelligence or wisdom is enhanced as one grows older. As they say with age comes wisdom. I hope the last one is true with all of us.

Well, fortunately, I have both! :) But I would rather lose by beauty than my brain. And I'd rather date a smart, homely guy than a stupid, handsome one. Beauty fades with time, but brains can become stronger as we use them.

well that's a hard question to answer,,because anyone can just answer brain for the sake of saying.but beauty also matters when it comes to reality.nobody wants to look ugly.well i would choose beauty now,,because i think already have a lot of brain. but if i have to choose one,,like others i would also choose brain. hey,,you want to share,,lol it means you are very rich in one thing and very poor in another. and you look quite beatiful in pic(if it is urs) now do that mean on the brain side you are......lol(just kidding. peace.

Thank you for this nice post and thank you as well for this will give me the chance to talk of my thoughts... Some women would perhaps choose beauty as it is a natural desire of any woman. This is why many women spend a lot to maintain their physical beauty. But the word of God says "Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain", so where then is the gain? On the other hand some would choose brain. They might rather choose to become brainy or smart because this will help them achieve their career goals. But intelligence is lacking in terms of what God expects of us. As a Christian woman I would rather choose for something which is far more important than just beauty or brain. Don't get me wrong. it's of course nice to have both beauty and brains but far more than beauty or brain could afford to give me, I desire to have... Wisdom. Wisdom enters the heart and this differs wisdom from intelligence because intelligence on the other hand is found in the brain. As to why I sincerely desire Wisdom, I will let the proceeding verses from the word of God explain for me:Pro. 4:7 - Wisdom [is] the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Pro. 8:11: For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. Pro. 16:16: How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding. Proverbs 22:4 (KJV): "By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honor, and life." 3:13,6: "Happy is the man that findeth wisdom....Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor." I therefore choose neither Beauty nor Brain but Wisdom because Wisdom has the blessing of happiness, long life and riches and honor as well. Have a very nice day!

An intelligent response would be to say, I would rather choose brains. But if you are born with nice features and you tend to be dumb (sorry for the choice of words), you can try harder to study well, read books, practice the things that you are good at, then you could learn to be smart. There are some who are not good at school but they are street-smart. However, let's say you are born with brains, the capability to grasp things easily but your features are not pleasant to look at at all, you would need a surgery to be beautiful. It's hard to enhance beauty when you do not have it. I know I am putting it in a harsh way. But really, who wants to be on the extremes. Although, beauty is more than the outward appearance. I would rather be born with average beauty and brains that I can enhance if I want to.

Hey glory, i think i will prefer brain and if it is combined with beauty, its better. So if i hav a choice then i will prefer the brain and then beauty. because the outer beauty will fade away but the brain and inner beauty will remain even after hundred years.

I choose beauty because I'm handsom, I believe that brain makes quarral between two, where as beauty is beautifull and has more wisdom so I will prefer beauty !!
