Famous quotes containing the word appearance:

    To educate the wise man, the State exists; and with the appearance of the wise man, the State expires. The appearance of character makes the state unnecessary. The wise man is the State.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    By nature servile, people attempt at first glance to find signs of good breeding in the appearance of those who occupy more exalted stations.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    Every natural fact is a symbol of some spiritual fact. Every appearance in nature corresponds to some state of the mind, and that state of the mind can only be described by presenting that natural appearance as its picture.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
