Reply to "So or such"

According to what I know, "such"  doesn't need to be followed by an adjective. It can be followed by a (noun) as in this sentence:

* She had such beauty that everyone was attracted to her.

Hi, Yama: That sentence works because beauty is a noun relating to an adjective: beautiful. The sentence means: "She was so beautiful that everyone was attracted to her." (I'd use that construction instead.) So, you could make up similar sentence pairs with courage/courageous, loyalty/loyal, fear/afraid, etc. I believe I am in agreement with everything DocV and Gustavo have said above. Such does not work at all in your sentence.
