Famous quotes containing the word external:

    A tempest cracked on the theatre. Quickly,
    The wind beat in the roof and half the walls.
    The ruin stood still in an external world.
    It had been real. It was something overseas
    That I remembered, something that I remembered
    Overseas, that stood in an external world.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    No real “vital” character in fiction is altogether a conscious construction of the author. On the contrary, it may be a sort of parasitic growth upon the author’s personality, developing by internal necessity as much as by external addition.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    My grief lies all within,
    And these external manners of laments
    Are merely shadows to the unseen grief
    That swells with silence in the tortured soul.
    There lies the substance.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
