Quote of the Week

We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.
 - Anais Nin


Who we are as individuals influences everything around us, including what we see.  Two people may see the same picture, building or other object and offer completely different opinions.  Using the cliche about seeing the glass half full or half empty, it is easy to see how different personalities would have different views.

  6. I've never read that quote before. Yes, reality is quite subjective, isn't it. That we manage to get along as well as we do is quite something.

  8. Jayne- Yes, it is a wonder isn't it. I know I can be quite different in my thoughts, etc. but then my Mom said I'm not like everybody else. I guess that's true of everyone.

    Meleah- We are all unique individuals with unique thoughts and opinions and that colors what we see and how we think.

  9. Linda, this is so true. Actually, you are pointing out why "eye witness" descriptions are so kywacky. People just don't see or even hear the same things ever.
