"Handsome is as handsome does." What does it mean? How do we translate it into Chinese?

=====================================================================
大意是指:
"魅力之所在, 在其大方/慷慨/文雅/有教養的表現, 不在其虛有美的外表。"

"Handsome is 'as' handsome does."
= "Handsome is 'that' handsome does."

The word "handsome" denotes chivalrous or genteel behaviour, though it is often popularly taken to refer to good looks. At its second occurrence in the proverb the word is properly an adverb. .........

==> "How one acts is more important than how one looks."

== It is more important to treat people well than to be good-looking; just because you are good-looking does not mean you are a good person.

Hi Lily,

Did you actually mean you just love "monkey"?

"monkey see, monkey do"
= 見樣學樣, 模仿他人; 盲目追隨; 上行下效; 東施效颦; 依樣畫葫蘆, 照抄照搬

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Who_came_up_with_the_quote_monkey_see_monkey_do

The saying refers to the learning of a process without an understanding of why it works. Another definition implies the act of mimicry, usually with limited knowledge of the consequences.

Monkey see, monkey do is a saying originated in Jamaica in the early 18th century and popped up in the early 1920s. It's probably from the folklore of West Africa, made well-known by retelling, which she calls (A Tale of a Peddler; Some Monkeys and Their Monkey Business). There are also various other versions of this, such as The Hatseller and the Monkeys by Baba Wagué Diakité, set in Mali.

I guess I'll have to take a pill or two of pain-killer before I can join the party!
