The gentleman asked the handsome guy to go and take a bath. While he was away the gentleman turned to the other guy and said “Your friend has given a very bad account of you, he said that you are a thief and of bad character. Is this correct?”
He therefore said “If my companion has a bad opinion about me, there must certainly be something wrong with me. I am afraid he must be correct.”
The gentleman observed that beauty was only a God given gift, and it did not follow that a person who had a handsome face had a pure heart as well.
The gentleman was greatly impressed with the character and intelligence of this man. In the meantime, the first man had returned from his bath.
The gentleman sent the second man (i.e. the ugly man to have a bath) and in his absence told the handsome man that his fellow man had given a bad account of him. On hearing this, the man burst into invectives against his companion and said that he was a rascal and a liar.
The gentleman thus came to the conclusion that the man with a beautiful face had no inner worth while the man with an ugly face had much inner worth.
The moral of the story is that beauty is only skin deep. All that glitters is not gold.
“Every man is hidden under his own tongue” The tongue reveals the inner intelligence as well as inner vileness .
“The safety of a man lies in holding his tongue”
