Like many old sayings this one is suspect for beauty is a composite of several factors. Of course the outward countenance is what strikes one first and if it is most striking it overrides faults that are evident later on.
As time passes inward beauty far exceeds the outward that fades over time.
In the spiritual world lust is a driving force that sets up warfare within the soul of man.
Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
James touched upon this; James 4:1 From whence come wars and fighting's among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
The answer is there is a war going on within you. Paul the apostle understood the struggle we have within to one degree or another and told Timothy; Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have confessed so well before many witnesses.
