beauty is only skin deep

beauty is only skin deep

Physical beauty is superficial and is not as important as a person’s intellectual, emotional, and spiritual qualities.

External attractiveness has no relation to goodness or essential quality. This maxim was first stated by Sir Thomas Overbury in his poem “A Wife” (1613): “All the carnall beauty of my wife is but skin-deep.“
