Rutherford B. Hayes
The bad gains respect through imitation, the good loses it especially in art.
Women are, in general, less shallow visually. If their man gains 10, 20 pounds, they don't care as much. But I've been with women over the years when my weight fluctuated, and they're definitely more interested physically when I am in really great shape.
