Appearance quotes

- Arendt, Hannah

Think not I am what I appear.

- Byron, Lord

- Kierkegaard, S°ren

Truth -- An ingenious compound of desirability and appearance.

- Bierce

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Beauty is the wonder of wonders. It is only the shallow people who do not judge by appearances.

The appearance of right oft leads us wrong.

- Horace

We find nothing easier than being wise, patient, superior. We drip with the oil of forbearance and sympathy, we are absurdly just, we forgive everything. For that very reason we ought to discipline ourselves a little; for that very reason we ought to cultivate a little emotion, a little emotional vice, from time to time. It may be hard for us; and among ourselves we may perhaps laugh at the appearance we thus present. But what of that! We no longer have any other mode of self-overcoming available to us: this is our asceticism, our penance.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich

The biggest fool in the world is he who merely does his work supremely well, without attending to appearance.
