Appearance quotes
Appearance
Regardless of weather, the moon shines the same; it is the drifting clouds that make it seem different on different nights.

If one wishes to become rich they must appear rich.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
The work of science is to substitute facts for appearances, and demonstrations for impressions.

- Ruskin, John
First impressions are often the truest, as we find (not infrequently) to our cost, when we have been wheedled out of them by plausible professions or studied actions. A man's look is the work of years; it is stamped on his countenance by the events of his whole life, nay, more, by the hand of nature, and it is not to be got rid of easily.

- Hazlitt, William
Freedom of enterprise was from the beginning not altogether a blessing. As the liberty to work or to starve, it spelled toil, insecurity, and fear for the vast majority of the population. If the individual were no longer compelled to prove himself on the market, as a free economic subject, the disappearance of this freedom would be one of the greatest achievements of civilization.

- Marcuse, Herbert
Fine words and an insinuating appearance are seldom associated with true virtue.

- Confucius
Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance, but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Regardless of how you feel inside, always try to look like a winner. Even if you are behind, a sustained look of control and confidence can give you a mental edge that results in victory.

- Ashe, Arthur
Neglect of appearance becomes men.

- Ovid
TRUTH, n. An ingenious compound of desirability and appearance. Discovery of truth is the sole purpose of philosophy, which is the most ancient occupation of the human mind and has a fair prospect of existing with increasing activity to the end of time.

- Ambrose Bierce
Taste is more to do with manners than appearances. Taste is both myth and reality; it is not a style.

- Bayley, Stephen
The true, prescriptive artist strives after artistic truth; the lawless artist, following blind instinct, after an appearance of naturalness. The one leads to the highest peaks of art, the other to its lowest depths.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
By listening to his language of his locality the poet begins to learn his craft. It is his function to lift, by use of imagination and the language he hears, the material conditions and appearances of his environment to the sphere of the intelligence where they will have new currency.

- William Carlos Williams
So different are the colors of life, as we look forward to the future, or backward to the past; and so different the opinions and sentiments which this contrariety of appearance naturally produces, that the conversation of the old and young ends generally with contempt or pity on either side.

- Johnson, Samuel
It is in the very nature of things human that every act that has once made its appearance and has been recorded in the history of mankind stays with mankind as a potentiality long after its actuality has become a thing of the past.

- Arendt, Hannah
We see things as we are, not as they are.

- Rosten, Leo
I've played a lot of bad guys, 'cause that was the only work I could get. People saw my face and went Oooh.

- Fishburne, Laurence
A dimple on the chin, the devil within.

- Proverb, Gaelic
The man whose whole activity is diverted to inner meditation becomes insensible to all his surroundings. If he loves, it is not to give himself, to blend in fecund union with another being, but to meditate on his love. His passions are mere appearances, being sterile. They are dissipated in futile imaginings, producing nothing external to themselves.

- Durkheim, Emile
Then we are assured by Sartre that owing to the final disappearance of God our liberty is absolute! At this the entire audience waves its hat or claps its hands. But this natural enthusiasm is turned abruptly into something much less buoyant when it is learnt that this liberty weighs us down immediately with tremendous responsibilities. We now have to take all God's worries on our shoulders --now that we are become men like gods. It is at this point that the Anxiety and Despondency begin, ending in utter despair.

- Lewis, Wyndham
