„Not all Things that glitter are Gold” is something you tell yourself to protect yourself against the deception of appearances.
Unfortunately, the flip side of this lesson is a hefty cynicism, because one is tempted to simply read “nothing” instead of “not all things“.
And thus one no longer considers anything in the world that is somehow beautiful or good to be actually beautiful or good – it must be too beautiful or good to be true.
Yet this beauty, this good very much exists.
And especially in a time that tends to burst with cynic pragmatism and ulterior motives, it’s important to bring this other side into the center of attention:
Not all Things that glitter are Gold. But some Things are.
