Handsome is that handsome does

While making a judgment about a man we are often misled. There are both good and bad people in society. But we cannot judge them by their appearance. There are many good-looking people who are actually ill-tempered and bad. But there are also ugly men who are well-behaved. So it is wrong to call a good-looking man โ€˜handsomeโ€™ if he leads an evil life. For character is far more attractive and valuable than good appearance. There is a wise saying- the character is the crown of human life. Physical beauty is often all skin-deep. We may lose it through an accident or for another reason. It is destroyed by illness and old age. So physical beauty is transitory. But moral worth- the beauty of mind and soul- has a wholesome and abiding influence. It helps to provide men with spiritual beauty rather than physical beauty. It endears a man to us more than his attractive outside which we may admire but never love. But many people do not want to find out the spiritual beauty of a person, they only look for their physical appearance, their beautiful dresses and the like. But everyone should avoid this kind of meanness. In fact, beauty lies in manโ€™s deeds and not in his appearance.
