I’ve grown accustomed to her face!
She almost makes the day begin.
I’ve grown accustomed to the tune
She whistles night and noon.
Her smiles. Her frowns.
Her ups, her downs,
Are second nature to me now;
Like breathing out and breathing in.
I was serenely independent and content before we met.
Surely I can always be that way again-
And yet
I’ve grown accustomed to her looks,
Accustomed to her voice;
Accustomed to her face.

--Alan Jay Lerner

Perhaps these lyrics echo Oscar Wilde's sentiments. And I think it's not just towards women but people in general. People have idiosyncracies. Other people can learn to live with them and be their friend anyway, or find them weird and send them on their way. I choose to go for the former. I can only hope I'm doing a good job at dealing with people and their hang-ups! :)
