How little do they see what is, who frame their hasty judgments upon that which seems!
      - Robert Southey

Gold all is not that doth golden seem.
      - Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene
         (bk. II, canto VIII, st. 14)

Will she pass in a crowd? Will she make a figure in a country church?
      - Jonathan Swift, Letter to Stella

She looks as if butter wouldn't melt in her mouth.
      - Jonathan Swift, Polite Conversation
         (dialogue I)

A fair exterior is a silent recommendation.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

There is in us more of the appearance of sense and virtue than of the reality.
      - Marguerite de Valois

An immense, misshapen, marvelous monster whose eye is out.
  [Lat., Monstrum horrendum, informe, ingens, cui lumen ademptum.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        The Aeneid (III, 658)

Of the terrible doubt of appearances,
  Of the uncertainty after all, that we may-be deluded,
    That may-be reliance and hope are but speculations after all,
      That may-be identity beyond the grave is a beautiful fable only.
        May-be the things I perceive, the animals, plants, men, hills, shining and flowing waters,
          The skies of day and night, colors, densities, forms, may-be these are (as doubtless they are) only apparitions, and the real something has yet to be known.
      - Walt Whitman,
        Of the Terrible Doubt of Appearances

A man of sense can artifice disdain,
  As men of wealth may venture to go plain.
    . . . .
      I find the fool when I behold the screen,
        For 'tis the wise man's interest to be seen.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire II, l. 193)
