If we have not peace within ourselves, it is in vain to seek it from outward sources.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
In many ways, America is on the receiving end of a pendulum that has been swung with great force, and for a long time, outward into the world. The impact is a wake-up call on every level.
The outward work will never be puny if the inward work is great.
It is the unseen and the spiritual in people that determines the outward and the actual.
Gracefulness has been defined to be the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul.
Nothing seems at first sight less important than the outward form of human actions, yet there is nothing upon which men set more store: they grow used to everything except to living in a society which has not their own manners.
Alexis de Tocqueville
The inward area is the first place of loss of true Christian life, of true spirituality, and the outward sinful act is the result.
An inner process stands in need of outward criteria.
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.
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.
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.
If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot.
We're constantly morphing into different outward manifestations of ourselves. That's what I find curious about people.
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 place to improve the world is first in one's own heart and head and hands, and then work outward from there.
Robert M. Pirsig
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.

It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outward, until after many years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut.
V. S. Naipaul
Let us take refuge from this world. You can do this in spirit, even if you are kept here in the body. You can at the same time be here and present to the Lord. Your soul must hold fast to him, you must follow after him in your thoughts, you must tread his ways by faith, not in outward show.
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.
Margaret D. Nadauld
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
