    People who are beautiful to look at may not be nice people.

    While a beautiful person may indeed be a fine person, there is no guarantee of that. Therefore their beauty stops at the skin - it goes no deeper. There is no connection between a beautiful face and a beautiful spirit.

    I see it as meaning that beauty is external, shallow, relatively unimportant.
