    Re: Looks can be deceiving

    Appearances can be deceptive.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    You can't judge a book by its cover.

    All that glitters is not gold.

    I would argue, however, that it should be "Not all that glitters is gold".
