Quotes about facade


1. It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a facade of order - and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.
- Douglas R. Hofstadter, Metamagical Themas: Questing for the Essence of Mind and Pattern

2. The philosophies of men surround us. The face of sin today often wears the mask of tolerance. Do not be deceived; behind that facade is heartache, unhappiness, and pain.

Have the moral courage to be a light for others to follow.
- Thomas S. Monson
