What is All That Glitters Is Gold?


From the song "Stairway To Heaven." There's a lady who's sure, all that glitters is gold... so, she believes a falsehood, but one that guides her nonetheless. This is a sardonic or dark spin on the age old saying that "all that is gold does not glitter."

Go to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.

Dude she may be hot, but she has crabs. You can't think all that glitters is gold.


a phrase used by a piss-fetishist when they are craving for some golden-yellow love

Kennith - "Hey big sexy, whatcha wanna do tonight?"

Benjamin - "All that glitters is gold"


only shooting stars can break the mold

Lyrics from Smash Mouth

All that glitters is gold


i think it means that everyone has something special about them, something that makes them glitter ,therefore everyone is gold.

i dont have an example, it is just what i belive

See danielle


its all gold you idiot

all that glitters is gold


A line from Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven", and since no one really knows what that song means, no one really knows what "all that glitters is gold" means either.
