Never judge a book by its cover. 不要以貌取人。(不要以一本书的封面好坏来判断书的好坏)

这是一句经常可以看到的格言,而且也经常被篡改成其他近似的说法,来表达一些特定的意思,Google一下,得到很多这样的句子:
Never judge a day by its weather. (气象服务)
Never judge a man by his T-shirt. (服装店)
Never judge a mobile phone by its cover. (手机门户)
Never judge a woman by the size of her shoes. (卖鞋的)
Never judge an auction by its cover. (eBay / 还记不记得上次有人天价买掉XBOX 360...的照片?)

这个最有意思:
Never judge a book by its movie.

是啊,我们已经看到很多由原著的书改编的电影,有多少真正忠于原著,甚至接近原著的高度呢?寥寥无几。出现这样的改编格言,也就相当耐人寻味了。
