Beautiful people are not necessarily good but good people are always beautiful. e.g Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa etc.

From your first proposition, it seems what you mean by "beautiful" is the physical appearance of people, because if you meant spiritual beauty, it would be contradictory to believe someone can be spiritually beautiful, but not necessarily good. Therefore, I can refute your second proposition: What is your logical basis to argue that Nelson Mandela, or Mother Teresa were beautiful people?
Isn't beauty in the eyes of the beholder? Isn't it relative to your cultural context? What if someone believes long necks, or white skin, or curvy bodies are beautiful? Can they still believe these people were beautiful?

What the topic mean is that when a person is gifted with beauty, he/she is rarely gifted with intelligence and smartness. Or you can say that beauty (physical off course) and folly are generally companions. Mother Teresa, indeed a very charitable person was not at all a beautiful face. Nelson Mandela, also not an attractive face but certainly a beautiful soul. Beauty and folly go together. Miley Cyrus certainly go with the statement.

I think this might just be a definition debate. You might disagree with your opponent on what the word beautiful means but agree on everything else and if that's the case then the debate should just be, what do you think is the appropriate definition of the word 'Beautiful'. So please describe what you mean by beautiful and how you define the word. If you define beautiful as 'looking good to someone', than i can accept your challenge, because then i disagree. Because someone can obviously be a good person and at the same time look bad to someone, saying otherwise is to implying a person who is ugly to someone cant be a good person. So please describe what you think the word beautiful means first because i want to know if i agree with you or not and i don't want to have a debate on definitions :)
