External

Famous quotes containing the word external:

    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)

    It can be fairly argued that the highest priority for mankind is to save itself from extinction. However, it can also be argued that a society that neglects its children and robs them of their human potential can extinguish itself without an external enemy.
    Selma Fraiberg (20th century)

    Many are poets but without the name,
    For what is poesy but to create
    From overfeeling good or ill; and aim
    At an external life beyond our fate,
    And be the new Prometheus of new men.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
