Famous quotes containing the word exterior:

    The exterior must be joined to the interior to obtain anything from God, that is to say, we must kneel, pray with the lips, and so on, in order that proud man, who would not submit himself to God, may be now subject to the creature.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    It’s not a pretty face, I grant you. But underneath its flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
    Alan Jay Lerner (1918–1986)

    The competent leader of men cares little for the niceties of other peoples’ characters: he cares much—everything—for the exterior uses to which they may be put.... These are men to be moved. How should he move them? He supplies the power; others simply the materials on which that power operates.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
