Greetings Bilbo...everything is beautiful..in it's own way...so for me the depth of beauty of someone is when I feel the goodness dwelling within the Spirit of someone deeply within! It is not about judging at all, it is about seeing all within the book. then choosing to garciously accept lovingly the beauty therin! A persons real beauty is their Spirit....and as the book is opend and the pages turned we see the unveiling! Love grows greatly as we begin to see the unfolding of another! Simply put, much is unveiled as we begin to read the pages of the book...and Wow some books are lovely indeed, fulll of sorrows and joys, landscapes and scenes! Once you dive into a book that is beautiful...you become enhanced by it's beauty...if there is something which touches your soul, heart and mind! ((((hugs))))!
She Dances With Love!If you don't judge a book by it's cover, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, is beauty only skin deep ?
a person can be on the cover of ALL the beauty books, etc but be a ';not-so- beautiful'; person INside! She/He can have all the physical attributes of external beauty but still be miserable on the inside.
There again look at the opposite view. If he or she is not as physically appealing as their counterpart, they can be the most beautiful person on the inside.
That is one reason the phrase ';don't judge a book by it's cover'; was derived from the bible!!! It should not matter what a person looks like on the outside, what matters is what is in their heart !!If you don't judge a book by it's cover, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, is beauty only skin deep ?
In a society where image often counts for more than substance, Christians do well to keep in mind the Bible's sober reminder: ';Everything the world affords, all that panders to the appetites or entices the eyes, all the glamour of its life, springs not from the Father but from the godless world. And that world is passing away with all its allurements, but he who does God's will stands for evermore.';鈥? John 2:16, 17, The New English Bible
Real beauty comes from within,
not from what you wear or what so called skin deep it fades.......

it depends on what type of beauty, inner beauty can be applied to both statements, for example my husband might find my naivety cute and endearing where as other people might find it annoying, its beautiful to him but not them, and none of them would know it about me unless they got to know me :P
If you DON'T judge a book by it's cover, what do you judge it by? Obviously something deeper, like it's contents. And if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, who's to say what the ';eye'; of the ';beholder'; is seeing? If the ';beholder'; only sees skin, then the ';beholder'; is the shallow, ';skin deep'; item in your posit, not beauty. Beauty is far deeper than just skin, even though skin has it's beauty as well. God, as in Jesus our Christ, Bless you.
Yes beauty is only skin deep and as you get older and your beauty leaves, then you are left with either a loving and forgiving heart, or you are left with a hollow heart, one that is hateful, and evil.
We should want to have inner beauty as well.
Remember God created us
when we call some one ugly we are criticizing Gods work
who are we to do that? when we stand before him some day, he will ask why did we call this person ugly and who were we to do that
a person can have outward beauty, and be as ugly as satan on the inside
Woah, woah, woah ... woah. You're putting the cart before the horse; where there's will there's a way and the way, the truth and the light is Zombie Regan, always turning up like a bad penny, saved and earned!
When old age shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say'st,
'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,鈥攖hat is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'
True beauty is soul deep, and if your inner eyes are open you will behold this beauty and you'll see how the cover mirrors the book in the same way the outer mirrors the inner.
Don't be fooled...
Physical beauty is only skin deep...but there are so many other dimensions to true beauty that physical beauty can hardly be the only important one.
Beauty is only skin deep, yeah, yeah, yeah...One of my favorite Temptation songs.....%26gt;:)
There is 'true beauty' which is skin deep, while there is 'beauty' which is from the outside.
With all due respect, but comparing a book with a person is stupid. A book is not a living thing. Therefore your question doesn't make any sense. Have a Great Day!
Beauty is in the mind, love is in the heart.
Yes . . beauty is only skin deep but, ( there's always a but ) Ugly goes all the way to the bone!!
You need to ask the nearest beekeeper.
I always suspected you had a fun side Bilbo.
';is beauty only skin deep';
Yeah, BUT ugly is to teh bone.
i think it is more than skin deep if you are in true love.
Per Fox in Sox by Dr. Seuss, this is not the case.
