I wish everyone was beautiful in this world. And nobody would have been ugly like me.

I have a doubt concerning the second sentence.

  1. And nobody would be ugly like me.

  2. And nobody would have been ugly like me.

Can anyone suggest to me which one is grammatically correct?

    "I wish everyone was beautiful" refers to the present time, so why use a past tense for the second part? – Kate Bunting Dec 10 '20 at 17:50

I would say

I wish everyone were beautiful in this world. Then nobody would be as ugly as I.

In a way, you have a possible conditional clause there:

If everyone were beautiful in this world, nobody would be as ugly as I.
