Outward Quotations

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

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.
Jean de La Fontaine

One's appearance bespeaks dignity corresponding to the depth of his character. One's concentrated effort, serene attitude, taciturn air, courteous disposition, thoroughly polite bearing, gritted teeth with a piercing look - each of these reveals dignity. Such outward appearance, in short, comes from constant attentiveness and seriousness.
Yamamoto Tsunetomo
