    it's simple to judge book by its cover,

    to judge what happens in your life without knowing deeply the situation. It's easy to judge others when you don't know anything about them It's easy, it's lazy, it's stupid

    It's a very simplistic mentality to have

    towards people. The human psyche is still not completely understold, therefore, passing judgement on someone prior to first having a conversation with them is at the very least shallow. It's ludicrous and displays your lack of intelligence to be honest. This is all.
