“I DO BELIEVE SOMETHING VERY MAGICAL CAN HAPPEN WHEN YOU READ A BOOK.”great said by J.K. Rowling
What is a book?What’s their need in present world?Like these questions there are a lot more different questions that comes in people minds.So basically,a book is a number of pieces of paper,usually with words printed on them,which are fastened together and fixed inside a cover of stronger paper or cardboard.But those are not only printed words on paper,actually those are strong feelings,emotions and sentiments of one person.
Basically this idiom”Don’t judge a book by its cover” is a figurative phrase which means “you should not judge significance of something by it’s outward appearance only.”It is easier and faster to look at the instantaneous outer features of a person or an object.Many cannot deal with the troubling feeling of doubt when conversing with a stranger so to make it less challenging for themselves,they put a label on their new associate and act accordingly.
For example,you see a good-looking person and a bad-looking person.You know nothing about them except their skin color,their physical traits and fashion.Then what?You make all sorts of thoughts and make a massive data in a minute just taking a look on their outward appearance.You may attracted to the good-looking but a narrow minded person who can be a disaster for your life.He/She may not possess any real ability or talent.He/She can even turn out to be corrupt too.Outward appearance can be greatly misleading.There are utterly valueless things that look so good and taking them on their face value is foolishness.
Don’t be in such a hurry to condemn a person because he doesn’t do what you do,or think as you think.There was a time when you didn’t know what you know today.by Malcolm X.
On the other hand,some of the ugly looking things possess immense value.Their appearance is in no way equivalent to the worth they have.Literally,you cannot tell the quality of the contents of the book just by looking at the material used to hold it together.A book with a plain cover and simple title maybe more important,more entertaining,or more useful than a book bound in a flashier manner.
I think,rather than judging a book by its cover,we need to read the content of the book and place our judgements on what we see there.
