1. "El més complicat en aquesta vida és no reaccionar de la mateixa manera davant d'estímuls semblants. Et fereixes i t'entristeixes; desitges alguna cosa i l'observes; i de vegades no saps si reaccionar, paralitzar-te o tot el contrari. Cadascú té reaccions diferents, ressorts procedents de la seva infància. Els ressorts ens provoquen infelicitat perquè ens porten als mateixos llocs. I canviar els ressorts, o els costums, és gairebé impossible perquè en desactives un i n'apareixen deu. Et proposo que em permetis canviar els meus ressorts al teu costat. No els jutgis i no els qüestionis, I jo faré el mateix per tu. Et permetré canviar, que furguis en el teu interior, que m'ofereixis una altra versió de tu mateix i jo no la jutjaré. Vull que arribis a ser tu mateix amb mi, que la teva ressonància interna, allò que et fa vibrar, soni igual que l'exterior; que et sentis tot un; que no necessitis cercar la resposta perquè ja la tens dins teu."
Author: Albert Espinosa

Author: Anne Brontë
4. "Uma hipótese leva, na cabeça em que se estabeleceu ou mesmo na cabeça em que nasceu, uma vida comparável à de um organismo, já que assimila do mundo exterior apenas o que lhe é proveitoso e homogêneo. Quanto ao que é heterogêneo e prejudicial, ou ela não deixa que chegue perto, ou então, quando se trata de algo que é inevitável assimilar, expele-o novamente, intacto."
Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
5. "One's life, from being an exterior thing, grows inwards. Its intensity stays the same; and, d'you know, it's most mysterious, the corners in which the joy of living can sometimes hide away."
Author: Blaise Cendrars
6. "Where are we—" Kyungsoo yelps as Jongin practically throws him over the window pane of a filthy-rich looking convertible, a treacherous little thing parked up against the curb, all black exteriors and plush white interiors, not even bothering to open the door, "going?""To see fireflies," Jongin says muffling coughs in his sleeves, and it's only when Kyungsoo buckles up and looks over does he realize that the boy is grinning from ear to ear, "Real ones."
Author: Changdictator
7. "At eighteen most people wish to please, and the conviction that they have not an exterior likely to second that desire brings anything but gratification."
Author: Charlotte Brontë

Author: Christopher Eccleston
9. "The Winter Woman is as wild as a blizzard, as fresh as new snow. While some see her as cold, she has a fiery heart under that ice-queen exterior. She likes the stark simplicity of Japanese art and the daring complexity of Russian literature. She prefers sharp to flowing lines, brooding to pouting, and rock and roll to country and western. Her drink is vodka, her car is German, her analgesic is Advil. The Winter Woman likes her men weak and her coffee strong. She is prone to anemia, hysteria, and suicide."
Author: Christopher Moore
10. "To look at a star by glances - to view it in a side-long way, by turning toward it the exterior portions of the retina (more susceptible of feeble impressions of light than the interior), is to behold the star distinctly - is to have the best appreciation of its lustre - a lustre which grows dim just in proportion as we turn our vision fully upon it."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
11. "To approach the Other in conversation is to welcome his expression, in which at each instant he overflows the idea a thought would carry away from it. It is therefore to receive from the Other beyond the capacity of the I, which means exactly: to have the idea of infinity. But this also means: to be taught. The relation with the Other, or Conversation, is a non-allergic relation, an ethical relation; but inasmuch as it is welcomed this conversation is a teaching. Teaching is not reducible to maieutics; it comes from the exterior and brings me more than I contain. In its non-violent transitivity the very epiphany of the face is produced."
Author: Emmanuel Levinas
12. "There are metaphors more real than the people who walk in the street. There are images tucked away in books that live more vividly than many men and women. There are phrases from literary works that have a positively human personality. There are passages from my own writing that chill me with fright, so distinctly do I feel them as people, so sharply outlined do they appear against the walls of my room, at night, in shadows... I've written sentences whose sound, read out loud or silently (impossible to hide their sound), can only be of something that acquired absolute exteriority and a full-fledged soul."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
13. "We are, on earth, two distinct races. Those who have need of others, whom others amuse, engage soothe, whom solitude harasses, pains, stupefies, like the movement of a terrible glacier or the traversing of the desert; and those, on the contrary, whom others weary, tire, bore, silently torture, whom isolation calms and bathes in the repose of independency, and plunges into the humors of their own thoughts. In fine, there is here a normal, physical phenomenon. Some are constituted to live a life outside of themselves, others, to live a life within themselves. As for me, my exterior associations are abruptly and painfully short-lived, and, as they reach their limits, I experience in my whole body and in my whole intelligence an intolerable uneasiness."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
14. "E assim prosseguimos com as nossas vidas, cada um para seu lado. Por mais profunda e fatal que seja a perda, por mais importante que seja aquilo que a vida nos roubou – arrebatando-o das nossas mãos -, e ainda que nos tenhamos convertido em pessoas completamente diferentes, conservando apenas a mesma fina camada exterior de pele, apesar de tudo isso continuamos a viver as nossas vidas, assim, em silêncio, estendendo a mão para chegar ao fio dos dias que nos coube em sorte, para logo o deixarmos irremediavelmente para trás. Repetindo, muitas vezes, de forma particularmente hábil, o trabalho de todos os dias, deixando na nossa esteira um sentimento de um incomensurável vazio."
Author: Haruki Murakami
15. "Las cosas que vemos – dijo Pistorious con voz apagada – son las mismas cosas que llevamos en nosotros. No hay más realidad que la que tenemos dentro. Por eso la mayoría de los seres humanos vive tan irrealmente, porque cree que las imágenes exteriores son la realidad y no permiten a su propio mundo interior manifestarse. Se puede ser muy feliz así, desde luego. Pero cuando se conoce lo otro, ya no se puede elegir el camino de la mayoría. Sinclair, el camino de la mayoría es fácil, el nuestro, difícil. Caminemos."
Author: Hermann Hesse
16. "Nos sentimos tentados a creerlos caprichos nuestros, creaciones propias, vemos vacilar y disolverse la frontera entre nosotros y la naturaleza, y adquirimos conciencia de un estado de ánimo en el que no sabemos si las imágenes en nuestra retina provienen de impresiones exteriores o interiores. En ningún otro momento descubrimos con tanta facilidad la medida en que somos creadores, en que nuestra alma participa constantemente en la recreación de la vida. Una misma divinidad invisible actúa en nosotros y en la naturaleza, y si el mundo exterior desapareciera, cualquiera de nosotros sería capaz de reconstruirlo, porque los montes y los ríos, los árboles y las hojas, las raíces y las flores, todo lo creado en la naturaleza, está ya prefigurado en nosotros: proviene del alma, cuya esencia es eterna, y escapa a nuestro conocimiento, pero que se nos hace patente como fuerza amorosa y creadora."
Author: Hermann Hesse
17. "No pasó mucho tiempo y me ví obligado a no buscar más la culpa de mis penas en el exterior, sino dentro de mí mismo."
Author: Hermann Hesse
18. "Y mi mayor deseo era vivir, por fin, un poco, dar algo de mí al mundo exterior, entrar en contacto y en lucha con él."

Author: Jeffrey Dean Morgan
20. "Am oroare de toata aceasta comedie sociala pe care o jucam.Aceasta odioasa comedie a disimularilor.Fiecare joaca un personaj si aproape niciodata nu esti in exterior,adica in actiuni si cuvinte,asa cum esti in realitate.Si asta pentru ca in chiar natura omului e o incapacitate de a se exterioriza.Tot ce iese din noi se falsifica ori se degradeaza."
Author: Jeni Acterian
21. "Do you know how long it takes to charm people from Maine? They're uptight white people coated with a hard exterior made from other uptight white people."
Author: Joel Stein
22. "I want what we all want," said Carl. "To move certain parts of the interior of myself into the exterior world, to see if they can be embraced."
Author: Jonathan Lethem
23. "My soul cried out for Ash, for his courage and determination; for the way his eyes thawed when he looked at me, as if I were the only person in the world; for that beautiful, wounded spirit I saw beneath the cold exterior he showed the world."
Author: Julie Kagawa
24. "Though it was dark, I could see how his eyes came alive with enthusiasm and the way he used his hands to illustrate with surprising grace. There were hidden depths beneath that impassive exterior. A sweet kernel shielded by a tough shell; dancing fire concealed in stone."
Author: Juliet Marillier
25. "Sadie heard her inside cleaning up the kitchen and wondered what dreams Betty's mother had for herself, if all mothers had them, bottled up beneath their mother exteriors."
Author: Karen Brown
26. "Men don't ask other men if they're getting home OK, they just assume that beneath the frail, weak exterior lurks a muscle-building kung fu master fearless of ever being mugged."
Author: Kate Griffin
27. "As a very young girl, I understood that the interior activities of the home are as significant as the exterior activities of society."
Author: Laura Esquivel
28. "In the sort of screen dappled with different states of mind which my consciousness would simultaneously unfold while I read, and which ranged from the aspirations hidden deepest within me to the completely exterior vision of the horizon which I had, at the bottom of the garden, before my eyes, what was first in me, innermost, the constantly moving handle that controlled the rest, was my belief in the philosophical richness and beauty of the book I was reading, and my desire to appropriate them for myself, whatever that book might be."
Author: Marcel Proust
29. "Optimists move through life with a happy exterior. What happens on the inside shows up on the outside."
Author: Marilyn Suttle

Author: Mark Twain
31. "- Miré, sólo unos segundos. Hacía 22 meses que no veía el mundo exterior. -¿Qué aspecto tenía? - Había estrellas. Me quemaron los ojos."
Author: Markus Zusak
32. "I am easily moved to tears and rarely survive a visit to the cinema without shedding them, racked, as I am, by the most perfunctory, meretricious or even callously sentimental attempts at poignancy (something about the exterior of the human face, so vast and palpable, with the eyes and the lips: it is all writ too large for me, too immediate for me.)"
Author: Martin Amis
33. "Ceea-ce-se-situeaza-în-sine-însusi devine, din clipa în care este considerat dinspre privitor, ceea-ce-se-în-fatiseaza, ceea ce se ofera în aspectul sau exterior."
Author: Martin Heidegger
34. "Don't get me wrong. For the most part, being strong got me through a lot. And I'm thankful that short of people dying on me, nothing can make me break down.There are times, however, when being strong feels a bit of a curse.You see, when you're a very strong person, people always expect you to take care of yourself. People always expect you to put on a calm and collected exterior. You're not given much room to freak out and be human."
Author: Nessie Q.
35. "I knew if there was ever a girl who could love me, warts and all, it would be the girl who went to the pound and adopted the ugliest, meanest piece of crap she could find."

Author: Nicole Williams

I had to clench my teeth and swallow hard to mask the loss that threatened to overcome my calm exterior. I was holding on for dear life then he said two words with pure tranquility."
Author: Nicole Castro
37. "There is a very definite Russian heart in me; that never dies. I think you're born and you live your life with it and you die with it. I'm very much an American - my books tend to be about American things, but inside there's that sort of tortured, long-suffering, aching, constantly analysing Russian soul underneath the happy American exterior."
Author: Paullina Simons
38. "Via the mediation of the Enlightenment, this movement had changed from a hobby among a tiny literate elite and their secretaries, an ostentatious amusement among princely and mercantile art patrons and their masterly suppliers (who established a first 'art system'), into a national, a European, indeed a planetary matter. In order to spread from the few to the many, the renaissance had to discard its humanistic exterior and reveal itself as the return of ancient mass culture. The true renaissance question, reformulated in the terminology of practical philosophy - namely, whether other forms of life are possible and permissible for us alongside and after Christianity, especially ones whose patterns are derived from Greek and Roman (perhaps even Egyptian or Indian) antiquity - was no longer a secret discourse or an academic exercise in the nineteenth century, but rather an epochal passion, an inescapable pro nobis."
Author: Peter Sloterdijk
39. "Las obras de amor al prójimo son la manifestación externa más perfecta de la gracia interior del Espíritu: «La principalidad de la ley nueva está en la gracia del Espíritu Santo, que se manifiesta en la fe que obra por el amor»[40].

Author: Pope Francis

Author: Salvador Dalí

I scanned the paint swatches, wondering if such a shade of blue would look good on the exterior of my house. "Mr. Johnson said you might need help selecting paint." "It's impossible," I muttered. "I just wanted to buy some blue paint. Why is this so complicated?" The handsome man stepped closer to my side. "It isn't, really. Just pick what you like." I like crystal-blue. Luckily, I didn't say those words aloud."
Author: Sydney Logan
45. "Had I known then what I know now, I would have clung to him. I would have looked him in the eyes to see that spark of mischief, that undying intelligence that belied his gruff exterior. If I'd known the inevitable, I would have said everything I felt in my heart and soul. I would have told him thank you for being my father. I would have said that if I'm ever going to be a good man, it's going to be because of the way he'd raised me... ...I would have told him I loved him. But I didn't. I didn't because I didn't know. I didn't even say goodnight. Or goodbye."

46. "No one is a good historian of the patent, visible, striking, and public life of peoples, if he is not, at the same time, in a certain measure, the historian of their deep and hidden life; and no one is a good historian of the interior unless he understands how, at need, to be the historian of the exterior also...True history being a mixture of all things, the true historian mingles in everything."
Author: Victor Hugo

"I wish I could believe in that." Luca brushed the dishevelled strands of hair away from my face again and looked into my eyes. "It doesn't matter. I'll keep saying it until you do."

I had feelings: passive as I lived, little as I spoke, cold as I looked, when I thought of past days, I could feel. About the present, it was better to be stoical; about the future—such a future as mine—to be dead."
