|Monet's first impression.|
They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression. This means first impressions are really important. A lot of people might find this to be true except it stands in direct conflict with the saying "Never judge a book by its cover".
So if you believe you should never judge a book by its cover then you should belive there IS a second chance to make a first impression. That second chance is all the pages inside the book. Yeah the cover might be crappy and that's your first impression, but then you open the book and upon reassessment of your first impression you realize the book is really exciting and interesting. This saying of not being able to make a second first impression is complete donkey manure.
