ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD

Gold is a very valuable metal; it has an attractive glittering appearance. But it does not mean that everything which glitters like gold should be precious. There are things that look like gold and taking than on their face value is unwise. A port on may be good looking, having an attractive character, But ho may not poises any real ability or talent A man must be judged on the basis of his abilities and not on his external appearance. Goodness, humility and perfection could not be made out from external appearance. Like shining glass pieces which dazzle and glitter like diamonds, the appearance of men can be greatly misleading.
