    Re: 'no less' VS 'not less'

    Sam: She is more beautiful than me.
    Pat: No, she isn't!
    Sam: Yes, she is.
    Pat: No, she's not (more beautiful than you are).
    => Meaning, she not as beautiful as I am.
    Pat: She is no more beautiful than you.
    => Meaning, she is just as beautiful as you.
