You look good or you are good!!

Being is desirable because it is identical wih Beauty, and Beauty is loved because it is Being....We ourselves possess Beauty when we are true to our own being; ugliness is in on going over to another order; knowing ourselves, we are beautiful; in self-ignorance, we are ugly. - Plotinus

Some days back a friend of mine said to me," You look good!" I appreciated the compliment, of course, but I also felt a little amused. I almost wanted a reply." What do you mean? I am good." Some people are mostly concerned with the looking good.We should not be content with that.If we want a compliment, we should be good and then others will say "You are good".

"You look good and You are good" - both sentences have a marked difference.Today, it is said that the image has become the person.If the public realtions people can make you look good, you come to believe that you are good.

We should never allow ourselves to emulate or admire images that merely look good.Whether in sports or entertainment or politics, celebrities offer good role modles only when they stand for lasting values. Coutresy (Words To Live - By E.Easwaran)

Agreed with what you say, but to me, both are important..I feel that both are compliments and have significance based on the context - between ppl who don't interact quite often - "looking good" feeling makes ppl care the presence of one another... on the other hand, "you are good" is an impression that one casts (or should cast) over a period of time..it's ur take now ..whatever it is, from what I deduce, "feedback" is very important - be it "looking good" or "you r good", after all who prefers to look bad or be bad, ha ?

Meaning of the statement differs from person to person.Only after looking at the face we come across each other to talk and then come to know about nature.If we find both Face and Nature good then we like to carry on else somewhere we loose the relationship.
