A beautiful woman is fair. In accordance with the rules or standards; legitimate? Without cheating or trying to achieve unjust advantage?
Does fair mean just?
Is justice as love fair?

“I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”

— J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

“Do not accept anything as the truth if it lacks love. And do not accept anything as love which lacks truth! One without the other becomes a destructive lie.”

— St. Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein)
