Famous quotes containing the word appearance:

    The President has paid dear for his White House. It has commonly cost him all his peace, and the best of his manly attributes. To preserve for a short time so conspicuous an appearance before the world, he is content to eat dust before the real masters who stand erect behind the throne.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I think I am one of those who can manage not to take on a completely different appearance under their own glance.
    Jean Rostand (1894–1977)

    The whole appearance is a toy. For this,
    The dove in the belly builds his nest and coos,
    Selah, tempestuous bird. How is it that
    The rivers shine and hold their mirrors up,
    Like excellence collecting excellence?
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
