Do not judge a book by its cover a.k.a. Kalau beli buku, jangan baca kulit je!

People always say do not judge a book by its cover.  
But we do it anyway.  Because somewhere in the back of our mind, we don't really believe it.  

Because we know it's not entirely true that appearance does not tell anything about a person.  Tell me you haven't seen someone like this

in the street and avoid him?  By the way, I found his picture when I googled "crazy homeless man".  

Or someone like this

and try your best to impress him and make him notice you? 

Point is, appearance does play a role in helping people to judge people.  Otherwise, image consultants and stylists will be out of job already.  

Express yourself, they say.  Dress up according to your personality.  Add your own style, don't just follow.  Crap, crap, crap.  

This man got labeled as a crackhead by dressing up like this: 

Maybe he only wanted to express himself.  Kesian... 

And then, if you dress up like this

you'll be labeled as a sex symbol.  Or even lustful.  
So you see, people are hard to please.  Whatever you do, they'll just judge you again and again and again and again.  

Therefore, in order to save yourself from headache, don't give a damn.  God has given each and every one of us a brain to think with so that we can discern between good and bad.  Before we do anything, ask ourselves what our intention is.  Be honest.  Only then, you'll know whether you are up to no good or not.
