Chuang Tzu Story - Two concubines: one beautiful, the other ugly (美丑二妾)
Yang-tsze, having gone to Sung, passed the night in a lodging-house, the master of which had two concubines -- one beautiful, the other ugly.

The ugly one knows her ugliness, and we do not recognise it.' Yang-tsze said, 'Remember it, my disciples. Act virtuously, and put away the practice of priding yourselves on your virtue. If you do this, where can you go to that you will not be loved?'
