“THE FOX and the Leopard disputed which was the more beautiful of the two. The Leopard exhibited one by one the various spots which decorated his skin. But the Fox, interrupting him, said, ‘And how much more beautiful than you am I, who am decorated, not in body, but in mind.’"

“A fine coat is not always an indication of an attractive mind.”

Still, back in the day of martini lunches, wearing a jacket and tie (with pants, of course) would often get you a first class seat on an international flight.
