Famous quotes containing the word external:

    The ideal of brotherhood of man, the building of the Just City, is one that cannot be discarded without lifelong feelings of disappointment and loss. But, if we are to live in the real world, discard it we must. Its very nobility makes the results of its breakdown doubly horrifying, and it breaks down, as it always will, not by some external agency but because it cannot work.
    Kingsley Amis (1922–1995)

    The manifestation of poetry in external life is formal perfection. True sentiment grows within, and art must represent internal phenomena externally.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    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)
