Famous quotes containing the word external:

    Language disguises the thought; so that from the external form of the clothes one cannot infer the form of the thought they clothe, because the external form of the clothes is constructed with quite another object than to let the form of the body be recognized.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)

    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)

    Truth in philosophy means that concept and external reality correspond.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
