Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends. A wonderful morning to all of you. Today on this special occasion, I would like to speak some words on the topic- All that Glitters is not Gold.
We often come across the phrase “All that glitters is not gold.” It means that the outward appearance of something does not signify what it actually is, just like every object that glitters is not precious gold. Thus, we must always be careful to not judge things or people by their external appearance.
Taking things at surface value is deceptive since it blinds us to their true nature. Another phrase closely associated with the aforementioned one is “Do not judge a book by its cover.” Similarly, this too warns us against taking things at face value.
To conclude, we must always be careful of such deceptive appearances. Thank you for listening to me so attentively.
