Latin LOLCat: Appearances

Here is today's Latin LOLCat. The words literally mean "Don't trust the forehead." The Latin word frons means forehead or brow, and then later comes to mean the "front" of anything, and then by further extension "appearances, the outside, external qualities" (as opposed to inward qualities that lie behind the facade). If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check out the Bestiaria Latina blog.

Ne fronti crede.

Don't trust appearances.
