->''"All that glitters is not gold;[[note]]Some modern readers find the phrase misleading - the real meaning is ''"Not everything that glistens is gold."'' The syntax is an accepted, albeit archaic, poetic form: the original Creator/WilliamShakespeare line is "all that glisters is not gold". Glisters is an archaic word for "glisten". The idea is not original to Shakespeare, since he writes "All that glisters is not gold/Often have you heard that told"; it was already a proverb some centuries earlier.[[/note]]\\

* The motto itself is inverted in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' -- the [[PretentiousLatinMotto motto]] of the Alchemists Guild is "[[CanisLatinicus OMNIS QVI CORVSCAT EST OR]]"(All That Glitters Is Gold). Of course, the chief discovery of the guildmembers in fact being "how to turn gold into less gold."

* Played with in Literature/TheExecutioner novel ''Ambush on Blood River''. Mack Bolan is asked by a deposed African leader to recover a safebox stolen during a robbery in the Congo. Bolan is not interested until it's explained that as well as a stash of diamonds, the safebox also contained a list of people working for American intelligence (naturally the DirtyCommunists are also racing to seize this prize). Bolan recovers the safebox, only to find the list has crumbled to dust long ago; the former ruler was after the diamonds all along.

* ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'': The Holy Grail that grants its user immortality is kept inside a room with cups of all shapes and sizes. The old Knight Templar who guards it explains that the [[OnlyTheWorthyMayPass final test to prove oneself worthy]] is to pick out the right one. Donovan assumes that the Holy Grail must be a magnificent treasure fit for a king, a Jesus was the Son of God. The gold gem-encrusted cup he chooses to drink from turns out to be the wrong one, and he decays into a pile of ashes within seconds. Indiana then chooses the real one, which turns out to be an ordinary-looking cup that the son of a carpenter would use.

*The four get a hard lesson in this in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' when they raid a dungeon and come out with lots of treasureóbut most of it is fake or cursed. All in all, they make a measly 9,000 Swords for hours of tedious trudging around.
