How to use outward in a sentence?

  1. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry:

    Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.

  2. Socrates:

    Give me beauty in the inward soul; may the outward and the inward man be at one.

  3. Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus:

    That which the dream shows is the shadow of such wisdom as exists in man, even if during his waking state he may know nothing about it... We do not know it because we are fooling away our time with outward and perishing things, and are asleep in regard to that which is real within ourself.

  4. Cathryn Cluver Ashbrook:

    The European relationship has changed and will now be shrouded in skepticism, the arrival of a Joe Biden administration has yet to be embraced with the same fanfare as Barack Obama as President-elect, because Donald Trump has done more damage to the relationship than George W. Bush. Trump's outward aggression affected all aspects of European life, be it trade, defense or even the emotional shared ideas and cultural ties. All those things suddenly seem debased and of less value.

  5. Jack BarskyRead MoreJack Barsky:

    Historically, the KGB has always tried to influence and destabilize events all around the world. The explicitly stated goal of the Soviet Union was world communism organized in a Soviet-like system. Therefore, anything that could destabilize free and democratic nations was fair game. The KGB were champions in the game of 'fake news,' which was called 'disinformation' in the old days. While Russia's goals are not as ambitious as those of the Soviet Union, it is quite clear that the Russian leadership desperately wants to re-establish a strong Russia, on par with the United States. Therefore, anything that helps destabilize the US and other Western countries, anything that turns the focus of those countries inward rather than at the real outward threats would benefit Russia. In my view, it is not possible for a foreign nation to have a significant impact on the outcome of elections in this country. Try as they might, all they will be able to do is nibble around the edges.
