Art can only be truly art by presenting an adequate outward symbol of some fact in the interior life.
However great his outward conformity, the immigrant is not Americanized unless his interests and affections have become deeply rooted here.

Louis D. Brandeis
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.

The pilgrims on the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock. To my knowledge, they didn't wait around for a return trip to Europe. You settle some place with a purpose. If you don't want to do that, stay home. You avoid an awful lot of risks by not venturing outward.
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.
Our outward appearance is a reflection of what we are on the inside. Our lives reflect that for which we seek. And if with all our hearts we truly seek to know the Savior and to be more like Him, we shall be, for He is our divine, eternal Brother.

If we have not peace within ourselves, it is in vain to seek it from outward sources.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld

In outward show so splendid and so vain; 'tis but a gilded block without a brain.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
