the horse is not judged by the saddle —German proverb [reference]

A quite useful phrase. The Chinese equivalent is: "The man is not judged by his look; the sea is not measured by a spoon."

    I suppose the English equivalent is “You can’t judge a book by its cover”. This is also the title of rather a good blues song.
