Quote of the Day
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
In this outward and physical ceremony we attest once again to the inner and spiritual strength of our Nation. As my high school teacher, Miss Julia Coleman, used to say: 'We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles.'
Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Happiness is inward, and not outward; and so, it does not depend on what we have, but on what we are.
Henry Van Dyke
Outward judgment often fails, inward judgment never.
Every day I shall put my papers in order and every day I shall say farewell. And the real farewell, when it comes, will only be a small outward confirmation of what has been accomplished within me from day to day.
Love, whether newly born, or aroused from a deathlike slumber, must always create sunshine, filling the heart so full of radiance, this it overflows upon the outward world.
It is the unseen and the spiritual in people that determines the outward and the actual.
The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge.
Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.
Jean de La Fontaine
We should look to the mind, and not to the outward appearance.
O' What may man within him hide, though angel on the outward side!
Beauty is an outward gift, which is seldom despised, except by those to whom it has been refused.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We are becoming able to see the pursuit of external power for what it is and the futility of trying to escape the pain of powerlessness by changing the world. When we look inward, not outward, we can dismantle the parts of our personalities that have controlled us for so long - such as anger, jealousy, vindictiveness, superiority, inferiority.
If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot.
I believe that in a great city, or even in a small city or a village, a great theater is the outward and visible sign of an inward and probable culture.
Happiness is an attitude of mind, born of the simple determination to be happy under all outward circumstances.
J. Donald Walters
Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world.
Others indeed may talk, and write, and fight about liberty, and make an outward pretence to it; but the free-thinker alone is truly free.
The habit of being happy enables one to be freed, or largely freed, from the domination of outward conditions.
Robert Louis Stevenson
There is a courtesy of the heart; it is allied to love. From its springs the purest courtesy in the outward behavior.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
All religious leaders and spiritual teachers emphasize finding a place within us that is true. People who obsessively follow these leaders instead of their own purpose attach to the spiritual leader and become fanatical and controlling. That's why Jesus tried to tell his followers not to get attached to outward form.
The outward work will never be puny if the inward work is great.
All outward forms of religion are almost useless, and are the causes of endless strife. Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good, behave yourself and never mind the rest.
Parents learn the uses of power and its limits. They can insist on certain outward behavior but cannot change inner attitudes. They can require obedience but not goodness - and certainly not love.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
