“Never judge a book by its cover.”
Many people look at someone or something and make an assumption right away by their first thought. For example, if you see a man on the streets, who is in dirty sweatpants, he has not shaven in a while and he looks dirty; you automatically think he’s homeless. Right there, you judged him without even thinking twice about why he may look like that. Every day people judge something by its appearance. That is what this quote means. Never judge something by its appearance because you never know what’s inside. Most people’s interpretations of this quote are the same. Another example would be, if you see a really interesting commercial on a product, and you first thoughts are “Oh I’m going to get that!” So you buy it, bring it home and try it and its nothing like the commercial. It stinks! Your first judgment was that it is an amazing product because of how the commercial portrayed it and then you buy it and you see it sucks. Again don’t judge something on your first thought. Many think this quote is just about people. This quote can refer to anything from: people, shoes, movies, items, food and much more! This quote means a lot to me because when I had cancer and my physical appearance changes people judged my looks and thought horrible things about me. For example many who see a rough looking, skinny woman on the streets, who is really boney, may think she’s on drugs. There could be so many reasons why she looks like that. Maybe she is sick. Or she may have cancer; she could be anorexic and have an eating disorder. People can never know a reason for something based on their first judgment.
