Eve, we have a wonderful collection of stories about a town called Schildburg. The inhabitants were so intelligent and wise, that everyone from near and far would come and ask them for advice. The Schildburgers got so tired of this that they began to pretend they were stupid and foolish, and it worked: No one bothered them anymore. Unfortunately for them, it worked too well, and they actually became stupid.
So the moral of that story is: If you keep saying to yourself that you are something you're not (in this case ugly), someday you'll believe it so much it becomes true.
The thing is... those people liked being stupid, rather than smart, so they remained stupid.
I don't know if anyone liked being ugly, or got tired of being pretty, though.
