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)

    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)

    Given that external reality is a fiction, the writer’s role is almost superfluous. He does not need to invent the fiction because it is already there.
    —J.G. (James Graham)
