Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Henry Van Dyke
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.

It's how you look at beauty. Is it only an outward appearance with hair and makeup and a hot body, or is it something deeper than that?
No iron chain, or outward force of any kind, can ever compel the soul of a person to believe or to disbelieve.
The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge.
We do not know it because we are fooling away our time with outward and perishing things, and are asleep in regard to that which is real within ourself.
The outward work will never be puny if the inward work is great.
O' What may man within him hide, though angel on the outward side!
The habit of being happy enables one to be freed, or largely freed, from the domination of outward conditions.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Happiness is an attitude of mind, born of the simple determination to be happy under all outward circumstances.
J. Donald Walters
