Famous quotes containing the word appearance:

    February is a suitable month for dying. Everything around is dead, the trees black and frozen so that the appearance of green shoots two months hence seems preposterous, the ground hard and cold, the snow dirty, the winter hateful, hanging on too long.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    This mesa plain had an appearance of great antiquity, and of incompleteness; as if, with all the materials for world-making assembled, the Creator had desisted, gone away and left everything on the point of being brought together, on the eve of being arranged into mountain, plain, plateau. The country was still waiting to be made into a landscape.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    The fear of death is indeed the pretence of wisdom, and not real wisdom, being the appearance of knowing the unknown.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)
