Famous quotes containing the word external:

    The boundary line between self and external world bears no relation to reality; the distinction between ego and world is made by spitting out part of the inside, and swallowing in part of the outside.
    Norman O. Brown (b. 1913)

    A tempest cracked on the theatre. Quickly,
    The wind beat in the roof and half the walls.
    The ruin stood still in an external world.
    It had been real. It was something overseas
    That I remembered, something that I remembered
    Overseas, that stood in an external world.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The ideal of brotherhood of man, the building of the Just City, is one that cannot be discarded without lifelong feelings of disappointment and loss. But, if we are to live in the real world, discard it we must. Its very nobility makes the results of its breakdown doubly horrifying, and it breaks down, as it always will, not by some external agency but because it cannot work.
    Kingsley Amis (1922–1995)
