Famous quotes containing the word outer:

    Self-alienation is the source of all degradation as well as, on the contrary, the basis of all true elevation. The first step will be a look inward, an isolating contemplation of our self. Whoever remains standing here proceeds only halfway. The second step must be an active look outward, an autonomous, determined observation of the outer world.
    Novalis [Friedrich Von Hardenberg] (1772–1801)

    Take away an accident of pigmentation of a thin layer of our outer skin and there is no difference between me and anyone else. All we want is for that trivial difference to make no difference.
    Shirley Chisholm (b. 1924)

    Gillian Taylor: You’re from outer space?
    James T. Kirk: No, I’m from Iowa; I work in outer space.
    Harve Bennett (b. 1930)
