Perception quotes by Genevieve Cogman
#1. Stories matter - telling them, sharing them, preserving them, changing them, learning from them, and escaping with and through them. We learn about ourselves and the world that we live in through fiction just as much as through facts. Empathy, perception and understanding are never wasted. All libraries are a gateway into other worlds, including the past - and the future. #Quote by Genevieve Cogman
Perception quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#2. The essence of greatness is the perception that virtue is enough. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perception quotes by Melanie Joy
#3. We love dogs and eat cows not because dogs and cows are fundamentally different
cows, like dogs, have feelings, preferences, and consciousness
but because our perception of them is different. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Perception quotes by Tim Ferriss
#4. Slowing down doesn't mean accomplishing less; it means cutting out counterproductive distractions and the perception of being rushed. #Quote by Tim Ferriss
Perception quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#5. Psychologists usually try to help people use insight and understanding to manage their behavior. However, neuroscience research shows that very few psychological problems are the result of defects in understanding; most originate in pressures from deeper regions in the brain that drive our perception and attention. When the alarm bell of the emotional brain keeps signaling that you are in danger, no amount of insight will silence it. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Perception quotes by Kate Bornstein
#6. It is important to note that the relevant factor to sexual harassment in this story is not gender identity but gender perception. Some friends and acquaintances who have experienced harassment do not, in fact, identify as women; they were perceived as women. As I sought support, the key issue was not their gender identity, but the gender signifiers that led them to be perceived as women. If we don't admit that sexual harassment is a gendered experience, we can never shed light on the sexism implicit in many cases of harassment. However, in addressing these sorts of gendered experiences, we may find that gender identity is not the most useful category. #Quote by Kate Bornstein
Perception quotes by Steve Volk
#7. cognitive scientists studying human perception agree: we don't experience objective reality; we experience a model of objective reality that our brain creates for us. #Quote by Steve Volk
Perception quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#8. Same eyes, different perception.
Same ears, different judgement.
Same hands, different skills.
Same feet, different destinations.
Same minds, different reasoning.
Same hearts, different feelings.
Same souls, different actions.
Same lives, different experiences. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Perception quotes by Douglas Lain
#9. In every story of solipsism, there is always a conspiracy. Why? Because there is always a background involved in every perception. #Quote by Douglas Lain
Perception quotes by Jimmy Carter
#10. There's a common perception among college administrators that they should conceal the high level of sexual assaults that take place on their campuses because it would bring discredit to the university, bring them a bad name if it was publicized. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Perception quotes by Wallace Stegner
#11. [I]t is dangerous for a bride to be apologetic about her husband. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Perception quotes by M. Scott Peck
#12. Perception of the miraculous requires no faith or assumptions. It is simply a matter of paying full and close attention to the givens of life, i.e., to what is so ever-present that it is usually taken for granted. The true wonder of the world is available everywhere, in the minutest parts of our bodies, in the vast expanses of the cosmos, and in the intimate interconnectedness of these and all things ... We are part of a finely balanced ecosystem in which interdependency goes hand-in-hand with individuation. We are all individuals, but we are also parts of a greater whole, united in something vast and beautiful beyond description. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Perception quotes by Janice Almond
#13. All you really have to do is change your perception to change your life. #Quote by Janice Almond
Perception quotes by Calvin W. Allison
#14. The Intellectual Transcending Equation In Life:
Occurrence Plus Perception Minus Materialistic
Reasoning Divided By Nothing Equals Spiritual
Progression, With A Remainder Of Blessings. #Quote by Calvin W. Allison
Perception quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#15. How can we speak of the action of the mind under any divisions, as of its knowledge, of its ethics, of its works, and so forth, since it melts will into perception, knowledge into act? Each becomes the other. Itself alone is. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perception quotes by Michael Chabon
#16. because it was a drunken perception, it was perfect, entire, and lasted about half a second. I #Quote by Michael Chabon
Perception quotes by Nikki Rowe
#17. You could say that life just happens and it's the way it goes, you either accept it or you fight it ...
You can be one of the few that rises above this perception and fights in all their glory to create the life they want, regardless of the struggle.
Who do you want to be? Someone to remember or someone easy to forget ... #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Perception quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#18. There still remains a lot of space to share on earth, and overpopulation remains a perception. We put geographic and political boundaries around ourselves because of the need to rule and control. To find solutions, the current and future leader needs to go back to redefine underlying influences to relevant political, demographic and geographic systems. Will you take up the challenge and consider the possibilities? #Quote by Archibald Marwizi
Perception quotes by Tony Dovale
#19. Impossible is a perception based upon a limiting mental illusion. Possible is the belief in the potential of unseen possibility, #Quote by Tony Dovale
Perception quotes by Scott Adams
#20. Our perceptions of truth are built around what is practical, not what is true. Even the smartest human brain doesn't have the capacity for discerning true facts. That's why so many of us settle for scientific facts. It's the best we can do. #Quote by Scott Adams
Perception quotes by Derrick Jensen
#21. Perception is of course intimately tied to preconception. I have, as is true for each of us, a pair of cultural eyeglasses that will determine to greater or lesser degree what will be in focus, what will be a blur, what gives me a headache, and what I cannot see. I was raised a Christian - the mythology resides deep in my bones - and I know the story of Jesus nearly as well as I know my own. Until my late teens I couldn't see some of the darker acts perpetrated in the name of Christ. I still feel a twinge each time I say, "I am not a Christian," a slight apprehension that I may have gone too far. Sometimes I look up, a small part of my upbringing still telling me that my blasphemy will call forth a bolt of lightning from the sky. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Perception quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#22. The perception of reality is something that is constructed by the human mind based on its own needs and knacks. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Perception quotes by Justin Young
#23. [Self] Perception is directly proportional to performance. Change a youth's perception, and you change their performance, their future... and their life. #Quote by Justin Young
Perception quotes by Margaret Heffernan
#24. According to the psychologist irving Janis, is that our sense of belonging (which makes us feel safe) blinds us to dangers and encourages greater risk-taking. #Quote by Margaret Heffernan
Perception quotes by Katja Millay
#25. Like the glass I've been looking through is coated in the dust of my own perception and I haven't seen what's real. #Quote by Katja Millay
Perception quotes by Felix Dennis
#26. I couldn't care less what anyone's 'perception' of me is. I'm too long in the tooth to care. #Quote by Felix Dennis
Perception quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#27. Every single decision of your life is predicated on the healthy functioning of the prefrontal cortex. Even a slight malfunction in a tiny chunk of neuron anywhere in the PFC would lead to the mental deficit in your logical decision-making. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Perception quotes by Richard Artschwager
#28. I use visual perception as a way of bringing people into my space. #Quote by Richard Artschwager
Perception quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#29. People exercise the freedom to present themselves from a vast array of precepts. The modern human mind can engage in reflective thought and selectively determine how to organize the elements of perception. We can consciously elect to depart from stereotypical behavior and transcend the heretofore-established biological behavioral preferences. People can elect to hold prejudices or not, can make rational or irrational decisions to engage in war or not, and can take deliberate steps to arrest destruction of the ecosystem or not. Holding ourselves in check by placing a brake upon the human propensity to strike out in instinctual behavior is a distinct human quality. Restraint from instant gratification of strong impulses represents a unique human behavior trait. By intentionally refraining from committing an instinctual action, humankind asserts its sovereignty from its biological constitution. Unbound from the limitations of its biological nature, a person can employ the mind to devise alternative behavioral choices and the results of numerous behavioral choices culminate to provide a person with a sophisticated definition of the self. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Perception quotes by Agatha Christie
#30. The evidence of history is against you. The contemporary historian never writes such a true history as the historian of a later generation. It is a question of getting the true perspective, of seeing things in proportion. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Perception quotes by Tony Robbins
#31. Meanings don't just affect the way we feel; they affect all of our relationships and interactions. Some people think the first ten years of a relationship is just the beginning; that they're just now getting to know each other, and it's really exciting. It's an opportunity to go deeper. Other people could be ten days into a relationship, and the first time they have an argument, they think it's the end.
Now tell me, if you think this is the beginning of a relationship, are you going to behave the same way as if it were the end? That one slight shift in perception, in meaning, can change your whole life in a moment. In the beginning of a relationship, if you're totally in love and attracted, what will you do for the other person? The answer is: anything! If he or she asks you to take out the trash, you might leap to your feet and say, "Anything that lights you up, sweetheart!" But after seven days, seven years, or seventy years, people say things like, "What the hell do you think I am, your janitor?!" And they wonder what happened to the passion in their life. I've often shared with couples having trouble in their relationships that if you do what you did in the beginning of the relationship, there wont be an end! Because in the beginning of the relationship, you were a giver, not an accountant. You weren't weighing constantly the meaning of who was giving more. Your entire focus was just lighting up that person, and his or her happiness made you feel like your life was #Quote by Tony Robbins
Perception quotes by Steve Young
#32. Perception is reality. If you are perceived to be something, you might as well be it because that's the truth in people's minds. #Quote by Steve Young
Perception quotes by Scott Spencer
#33. Love gives us a heightened consciousness through which to apprehend the world, but anger gives us a precise, detached perception of its own. #Quote by Scott Spencer
Perception quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#34. Look sharply after your own thoughts. They come unlooked for, like a new bird seen on your trees, and, if you turn to your usual task, disappear; and you shall never find that perception again; never, I say-but perhaps years, ages, and I know not what events and worlds my lie between you and its return. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perception quotes by Ralph Linton
#35. The last thing a fish would ever notice would be water. #Quote by Ralph Linton
Perception quotes by Oliver Sacks
#36. This sense of the brain's remarkable plasticity, its capacity for the most striking adaptations, not least in the special (and often desperate) circumstances of neural or sensory mishap, has come to dominate my own perception of my patients and their lives. So much so, indeed, that I am sometimes moved to wonder whether it may not be necessary to redefine the very concepts of "health" and "disease," to see these in terms of the ability of the organism to create a new organization and order, one that fits its special, altered disposition and needs, rather than in the terms of a rigidly defined "norm. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Perception quotes by Jean Shinoda Bolen
#37. Synchronistic events offer us perceptions that may be useful in our psychological and spiritual growth and may reveal to us, through intuitive knowledge, that our lives have meaning. #Quote by Jean Shinoda Bolen
Perception quotes by Molly Izzard
#38. But whatever the form in which love appears, the lesson it teaches us is the same. We can never assimilate, never become, the beloved object. Possession is never complete, it will elude us in the end, and if we persist in our attempts to impose ourselves we will drown like Narcissus in the reflection of our own selves.

Yet if we can liberate ourselves from the desire to make the thing over in accordance with our own ideas, we open up a wonderful world of perception and understanding, and we can grasp dimly the majestic processes of human experience. Why should that come through the contemplation of lives so utterly unrelated to our own? Why love, if we can never possess?... #Quote by Molly Izzard
Perception quotes by Richard Rohr
#39. The key to entering into the Divine Exchange is never our worthiness but always God's graciousness. Any attempt to measure or increase our worthiness will always fall short, or it will force us into the position of denial and pretend, which produces the constant perception of hypocrisy in religious people.
To switch to an "economy of grace" is a switch that is very hard for humans to make. We base almost everything in human culture on achievement, performance, accomplishment, an equal exchange value, or some kind of worthiness gauge. I call it meritocracy. Unless one personally experiences a dramatic and personal breaking of the rules of merit (forgiveness or undeserved goodness), it is almost impossible to disbelieve or operate outside of its rigid logic. This cannot happen theoretically or abstractly. It cannot happen "out there" but must be known personally "in here. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Perception quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#40. If you think one thing is sacred but you cannot stand the other, if you love the Creator but hate the creation, that is vulgarity. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Perception quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#41. Perception without the perceiver in meditation is to commune with the height and depth of the immense. This perception is entirely different from seeing an object without an observer, because in the perception of meditation there is no object and therefore no experience. can, however, take place when the eyes are open and one is surrounded by objects of every kind. But then these objects have no importance at all. One sees them but there is no process of recognition, which means there is no experiencing. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Perception quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#42. Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Perception quotes by Macy Gray
#43. Am I a fruitcake? I don't know. Perception is reality, so if I sit here and say, "I'm not a fruitcake, I'm a lemon cake," it doesn't matter. What you see me as in your world is what I am; it doesn't matter what I am - do you know what I mean? To me, I know what my real problems are - and they're certainly not about cake. And that's just the way it is. #Quote by Macy Gray
Perception quotes by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
#44. We do not see things as they are, nor do we even see them as we are, but only as we believe our story to have been. #Quote by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
Perception quotes by Ross Parmenter
#45. True vision is always twofold. It involves emotional comprehension as well as physical perception. Yet how rarely we have either. We generally only glance at an object long enough to tag it with a name. #Quote by Ross Parmenter
Perception quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#46. Good breeding, a union of kindness and independence. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perception quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#47. Every act of perception has an emotional coloring. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Perception quotes by J.R. Rim
#48. The more you get set into your own world, the smaller your world becomes. #Quote by J.R. Rim
Perception quotes by Odysseus Elytis
#49. And yet from what is to what could be you cross a bridge that takes you, no more, no less, from Hell to Paradise. And more bizarre: a Paradise composed of the exact same material as Hell. The only difference is our perception of the material's arrangement – more easily understood by imagining it applied to ethical and emotional architectures – yet it's enough to pinpoint the immeasurable difference. If the reality created by people whose half-mast emotions and sensations disallow, now and perhaps forever, the other architecture or, in other words, the revolutionary re-synthesis, then, to my thinking, only the spirit is free and able to take it on. #Quote by Odysseus Elytis
Perception quotes by Emily Ann Benedict
#50. I can't settle for merely liking a man when I've known what it's like to love one. #Quote by Emily Ann Benedict
Perception quotes by Ken Hollings
#51. We will never understand our world until we have come to terms with its future: it is the age in which we live. The Cold War depended upon internal division in order to maintain itself. Behind its various feints, games and strategies lay a perception of behavior as a form of enforced conformity. People would only do what they were prompted to do. This was the thinking that held the lonely crowd together, briefly connecting the forward thrust of material progress with the broader evolutionary curve. #Quote by Ken Hollings
Perception quotes by Debasish Mridha
#52. Happiness doesn't depend on reality but it depends on perception. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Perception quotes by David Sedaris
#53. It bothered me that the bag bothered me more than head did, but what are you going to do? A person doesn't conciously choose what he focuses on. Those things choose you, and, once they do, nothing, it seems, can shake them. #Quote by David Sedaris
Perception quotes by Dalai Lama
#54. There is a common perception that compassion is, if not actually an impediment, at least irrelevant to professional life. Personally, I would argue that not only is it relevant, but that when compassion is lacking, our activities are in danger of becoming destructive. This is because when we ignore the question of the impact our actions have on others' well-being, inevitably we end up hurting them. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Perception quotes by Zephyr McIntyre
#55. We are seeds as well as parasites to the earth. We can either give or take, depending on our perception of growth. #Quote by Zephyr McIntyre
Perception quotes by John Verdon
#56. Sexual energy in general has tremendous power, the power to concentrate one's attention like nothing else, to become the sole reality, to warp judgement, to obliterate pain and the perception of risk. The power to make all other considerations irrelevant. There is no force on earth that comes close to it in its power to blind and drive the individual in its grip. #Quote by John Verdon
Perception quotes by William Paul Young
#57. You want to know why I live here, in this 'hovel'; I think that
is the word you used, based on your civilized and educated
There was no use denying it. "Yes, I was wondering. So
"It was the best you could give me." She didn't turn from her
"Excuse me? The best 'I' could give you? I had nothing to do
with this. I could build you something much better, but not this.
How could you think…?"
"It's all right, Anthony! I have no expectations. I am grateful to
have found even this small place in your heart. I travel light" -
she smiled as if at some secret thought - "and I make my home
inside the simplest gifts. There is nothing to feel bad or ashamed
about. I am thoroughly grateful, and being here is a joy!"
"So… because this is me, my world somehow, I have only
made this small place for you? #Quote by William Paul Young
Perception quotes by Gary Zukav
#58. A new species is being born inside each one of us. Eventually, we will all express the perceptions and values of this new species. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Perception quotes by Ariel Levy
#59. Instead of trying to reform other people's - or her own - perception of feminist, the FCP likes to position herself as something outside the normal bounds of womanhood. #Quote by Ariel Levy
Perception quotes by Harlan Ellison
#60. The only thing worth writing about is people. People. Human beings. Men and women whose individuality must be created, line by line, insight by insight. If you do not do it, the story is a failure. [ ... ] There is no nobler chore in the universe than holding up the mirror of reality and turning it slightly, so we have a new and different perception of the commonplace, the everyday, the 'normal', the obvious. People are reflected in the glass. The fantasy situation into which you thrust them is the mirror itself. And what we are shown should illuminate and alter our perception of the world around us. Failing that, you have failed totally. #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Perception quotes by Anne Rice
#61. One moment the world is as it is. The next, it is something entirely different. Something it has never been before. #Quote by Anne Rice
Perception quotes by Don DeLillo
#62. I am aware that when we see something, we are getting only a measure of information, a sense, an inkling of what is really there to see. I don't know the details or the terminology but I do know that the optic nerve is not telling the full truth. We're seeing only intimations. The rest is our invention, our way of constructing what is actual, if there is any such thing, philosophically, that we can call actual. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Perception quotes by Deepak Chopra
#63. The current perception I get from the evening news is that the world is dominated by human failure, crime, catastrophe, corruption, and tragedy. We are all tuning in to see how the human mind is evolving, but the media keeps hammering home the opposite, that the human mind is mired in darkness and folly. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Perception quotes by Frederick Lenz
#64. Everything is a state of mind. Astral travel is the ability to wander through different states of mind and develop psychic perceptions. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Perception quotes by Edward De Bono
#65. Perception is real even when it is not reality. #Quote by Edward De Bono
Perception quotes by Marie Anzalone
#66. We stood as the ground shifted
and we saw the view from below
through tiled floors
and concrete stairs,
our feet burning holes in the foundation
while you whispered of dreams. #Quote by Marie Anzalone
Perception quotes by Emily Dickinson
#67. Perception of an object costs
Precise the Object's loss - #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Perception quotes by Ka Chinery
#68. Your observations and conclusions are mirrored illusions of your inner state of being, teaching you truth through falsehoods, strength through weakness and clarity through confusion. You are seeing your Self now, disguised as the world through a lens of denial, but you will soon come to realize that what you choose to deny in yourself manifests into your world. The flaws you see in your world are your most powerful teachers. #Quote by Ka Chinery
Perception quotes by Camilla Gibb
#69. But that is the thing about miracles: it is perception that determines them as such, not facts. #Quote by Camilla Gibb
Perception quotes by Steven Redhead
#70. The belief that others think they are right doesn't mean that they are. #Quote by Steven Redhead
Perception quotes by Ramana Pemmaraju
#71. Life is a journey between Perception and Reality!" #Quote by Ramana Pemmaraju
Perception quotes by David McRaney
#72. When you fear you will confirm a negative stereotype, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy not because the stereotype is true, but because you can't stop worrying that you could become an example proving it.
This self-fulfilling prophecy, being only a matter of perception, can be easily sublimated. Another study by Steele measured the math abilities of men versus women. When the questions were easy, the women and men performed the same. When they were difficult, the women's scores plummeted lower than did those of their male peers. When they ran the tests again with new participants, but this time before handing out the problems told the subjects that men and women tended to perform equally on the exam, the scores leveled out. The women performed just as well as did the men. The power of the stereotype--women are bad at math--was nullified. #Quote by David McRaney

Perception quotes by Bradley Jersak
#74. In modern street-English, we use "hell" as a catchall term to describe the bad place (usually red hot) where sinful people are condemned to punishment and torment after they die. This simplistic, selective, and horrifying perception of hell is due in large part to nearly 400 years of the King James Version's monopoly in English-speaking congregations (not to mention centuries of imaginative religious art). Rather than acknowledge the variety of terms, images, and concepts that the Bible uses for divine judgment, the KJV translators opted to combine them all under the single term "hell." In truth, the array of biblical pictures and meanings that this one word is expected to convey is so vast that they appear contradictory. For example, is hell a lake of fire or a place of utter darkness? Is it a purifying forge or a torture chamber? Is it exclusion from God's presence or the consuming fire of God's glory?

While modern scholarship acknowledges the mis- or over-translation of Sheol, Hades, and Gehenna as "hell" - especially if by "hell" we refer automatically to the eternal punishment of the wicked in conscious torment in a lake of fire - the thoroughly discussed limitations of hell language and imagery have been slow to permeate the theology of pulpits and pews in much of the church. Why the reluctance? Do we resist out of ignorance? Or are we afraid that abandoning infernalism implies abandoning faithfulness to Scripture and sound doctrine? After all, for so long we #Quote by Bradley Jersak
Perception quotes by Roger Joseph Boscovich
#75. But if some mind very different from ours were to look upon some property of some curved line as we do on the evenness of a straight line, he would not recognize as such the evenness of a straight line; nor would he arrange the elements of his geometry according to that very different system, and would investigate quite other relationships as I have suggested in my notes.
We fashion our geometry on the properties of a straight line because that seems to us to be the simplest of all. But really all lines that are continuous and of a uniform nature are just as simple as one another. Another kind of mind which might form an equally clear mental perception of some property of any one of these curves, as we do of the congruence of a straight line, might believe these curves to be the simplest of all, and from that property of these curves build up the elements of a very different geometry, referring all other curves to that one, just as we compare them to a straight line. Indeed, these minds, if they noticed and formed an extremely clear perception of some property of, say, the parabola, would not seek, as our geometers do, to rectify the parabola, they would endeavor, if one may coin the expression, to parabolify the straight line. #Quote by Roger Joseph Boscovich
Perception quotes by Richard Shusterman
#76. Improved perception of our somatic feelings not only gives us greater knowledge of ourselves but also enables greater somatic skill, facility, and range of movement that can afford our sensory organs greater scope in giving us knowledge of the world. Besides augmenting our own possibilities of pleasure , such improved somatic functioning and awareness can give us greater power in performing virtuous acts for the benefit of others, since all action somehow depends on the efficacy of our bodily instrument. #Quote by Richard Shusterman
Perception quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#77. What we call art would seem to be specialist artifacts for enhancing human perception. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Perception quotes by Jennifer Phang
#78. Female directors really do need to support each other. Too many times I've been led to believe that my direct competition was other women, as if there can be only a handful of successful female filmmakers a year. That conversation, that perception, needs to change. Women are the people who have helped me make films I love, and I want to be that kind of strength to other women. #Quote by Jennifer Phang
Perception quotes by Frederick Lenz
#79. Life is the power to perceive. Without perception there is no life, and what is most endemic to perception is power. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Perception quotes by Christian Graugart
#80. It is up to ourselves to choose, which version of the world, we want to live in. I am only going to live one life here, so I always chose the positive perception. #Quote by Christian Graugart
Perception quotes by Salman Rushdie
#81. When a book leaves its author's desk it changes. Even before anyone has read it, before eyes other than its creator's have looked upon a single phrase, it is irretrievably altered. It has become a book that can be read, that no longer belongs to its maker. It has acquired, in a sense, free will. It will make its journey through the world and there is no longer anything the author can do about it. Even he, as he looks at its sentences, reads them differently now that they can be read by others. They look like different sentences. The book has gone out into the world and the world has remade it. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Perception quotes by Roy DeCarava
#82. It's the not the subject that interests me as much as my perception of the subject. #Quote by Roy DeCarava
Perception quotes by Frederick Lenz
#83. Consciousness is the screen. The images on the screen are your perceptions, the illusion that life is solid, that there is a material universe. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Perception quotes by Debasish Mridha
#84. Don't let the opinions of others interfere with your true perception. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Perception quotes by Gyalwa Dokhampa
#85. Habits of the mind also provide our mental framework – the way we see the world #Quote by Gyalwa Dokhampa
Perception quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#86. All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Perception quotes by Debasish Mridha
#87. To change the world, see the world through your heart, world will change along with your perception. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Perception quotes by Loren Weisman
#88. You can do something nice without posting it on social media.

Give with heart.
Share with authenticity.
And help without the spotlight.

It gets old fast with so many bragging, marketing and showcasing how giving they are. It also creates the perception that these individuals are doing this for their own promotion, marketing, and visibility, over genuinely trying to help another.

There is something beautiful in giving a gift and just doing it to do it and not doing it to brag.

The real honor of a person shines through so much brighter when they are not bragging about how much they do, how much they give and how much they care. #Quote by Loren Weisman
Perception quotes by Jane Devin
#89. I was fucked-up in some essential way that other people could see, but I couldn't. #Quote by Jane Devin
Perception quotes by Bertrand Russell
#90. All that passes for knowledge can be arranged in a hierarchy of degrees of certainty, with arithmetic and the facts of perception at the top. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Perception quotes by Elijah Wood
#91. I definitely don't look my age. So I actively look for roles that will help people change their perception of me. #Quote by Elijah Wood
Perception quotes by Robert Bosnak
#92. Aristotle said29 that "the greatest thing by far is to be a master of metaphor. It is the one thing that cannot be learnt from others; and it is also a sign of genius, since a good metaphor implies an intuitive perception of similarity in dissimilars. #Quote by Robert Bosnak
Perception quotes by Ansel Adams
#93. Photography is an investigation of both the outer and the inner worlds. The first experiences with the camera involve looking at the world beyond the lens, trusting the instrument will 'capture' something 'seen.' The terms shoot and take are not accidental; they represent an attitude of conquest and appropriation. Only when the photographer grows into perception and creative impulse does the term make define a condition of empathy between the external and the internal events. #Quote by Ansel Adams
Perception quotes by Eric Nies
#94. Eating a RAW food lifestyle is the purest and best way to live. Many of the strongest and longest living animals are raw, such as the panda bear and gorillas. Self love has brought me to a RAW lifestyle. Feeding my body with pure natural energy. Most people's perception is what has been ingrained inside them by manipulation, but slowly there is a shift in consciousness, one person at a time. People will ask more questions, begin to stand up for themselves, go their "own way", take better care of themselves, which will benefit everyone and everything around them. #Quote by Eric Nies
Perception quotes by Michael Montoure
#95. Time falls on us, like rain, it falls like rain until we drown in it, and sometimes, it's like the drains overflow, and time just - pools up, it seeps, it gathers in the corners. #Quote by Michael Montoure
Perception quotes by Emmy Kay
#96. I think loneliness is one of the greatest and realest things any of us can experience, because there is no one else there to corrupt it or interfere with our perception... which makes it extremely intimate and yet universal simultaneously. #Quote by Emmy Kay
Perception quotes by Roger Scruton
#97. Here we should notice a peculiar fact: that there are movements which are both essentially involuntary and yet confined to persons - to creatures with a self-conscious perspective. Smiles and blushes are the two most prominent examples. Milton puts the point finely in Paradise Lost:
for smiles from Reason flow,
To brute denied, and are of love the food.

These physiognomic movements owe their rich intentionality to this involuntary character, for it is this which suggests that they show the other 'as he really is'. Hence they become the pivot and focus of our interpersonal responses, and of no response more than sexual desire. The voluntary smile is not a smile at all, but a kind of grimace which, while it may have its own species of sincerity - as in the smile of Royalty, which as it were pays lip-service to good nature - is not esteemed as an expression of the soul. On the contrary, it is perceived as a mask, which conceals the 'real being' of the person who wears it. Smiling must be understood as a response to another person, to a thought or perception of his presence, and it has its own intentionality. To smile is to smile at something or someone, and hence when we see someone smiling in the street we think of him as 'smiling to himself, meaning that there is some hidden object of his present thought and feeling.
The smile of love is a kind of intimate recognition and acceptance of the other's presence - an involuntary acknowledgement that h #Quote by Roger Scruton

Perception quotes by D. A. Carson
#99. The person who loves his life will lose it: it could not be otherwise, for to love one's life is a fundamental denial of God's sovereignty, of God's rights, and a brazen elevation of self to the apogee of one's perception, and therefore an idolatrous focus on self, which is the heart of all sin #Quote by D. A. Carson
Perception quotes by Sienna Miller
#100. I'm a real relationship person - contrary to public perception. I'm either in one or I'm not. #Quote by Sienna Miller
Perception quotes by William Blake
#101. Mans desires are limited by his perceptions; none can desire what he has not perceived. #Quote by William Blake
Perception quotes by Henry James
#102. She was a young person of many theories; her imagination was remarkably active. It had been her fortune to possess a finer mind than most of the persons among whom her lot was cast; to have a larger perception of surrounding facts, and to care for knowledge that was tinged with the unfamiliar...It may be affirmed without delay that She was probably very liable to the sin of self-esteem; she often surveyed with complacency the field of her own nature; she was in the habit of taking for granted, on scanty evidence, that she was right; impulsively, she often admired herself...Every now and then she found out she was wrong, and then she treated herself to a week of passionate humility. After this she held her head higher than ever again; for it was of no use, she had an unquenchable desire to think well of herself. She had a theory that it was only on this condition that life was worth living; that one should be one of the best, should be conscious of a fine organization, should move in the realm of light, of natural wisdom, of happy impulse, of inspiration gracefully chronic. #Quote by Henry James
Perception quotes by Tom Wolfe
#103. [Aldous Huxley] compared the brain to a 'reducing valve'. In ordinary perception, the senses send an overwhelming flood of information to the brain, which the brain then filters down to a trickle it can manage for the purpose of survival in a highly competitive world. Man has become so rational, so utilitarian, that the trickle becomes most pale and thin. It is efficient, for mere survival, but it screens out the most wondrous part of man's potential experience without his even knowing it. We're shut off from our own world. #Quote by Tom Wolfe
Perception quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#104. The great make its feel, first of all, the indifference of circumstances. They call into activity the higher perceptions, and subdue the low habits of comfort and luxury; but the higher perceptions find their objects everywhere; only the low habits need palaces and banquets. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perception quotes by Alex Z. Moores
#105. Love feels like this fog. It slinks in from some hidden place and silently overtakes me. It seems so dense, but when I reach into it, there's nothing of substance. Then, before too long, it simply vanishes. That's my perception of love. #Quote by Alex Z. Moores
Perception quotes by Todd Duncan
#106. Your direction is a result of your perception. #Quote by Todd Duncan
Perception quotes by Michael Faraday
#107. but let me, as an old man, who ought by this time to have profited by experience, say that when I was younger, I found I often misinterpreted the intentions of people, and found they did not mean what at the time I supposed they meant; and, further, that as a general rule, it was better to be a little dull of apprehension, where phrases seemed to imply pique, and quick in perception, when on the contrary they seemed to imply kindly feeling. The real truth never fails ultimately to appear; and opposing parties if wrong, are sooner convinced when replied to forbearingly, than when overwhelmed. All I mean to say is, that it is better to be blind to the results of partisanship, and quick to see good will. One has more happiness in oneself, in endeavoring to follow the things that make for peace. You can hardly imagine how often I have been heated in private when opposed, as I have thought unjustly and superciliously, and yet I have striven, and succeeded I hope, in keeping down replies of the like kind. And I know I have never lost by it. I would not say all this to you did I not esteem, you as a true philosopher and friend. #Quote by Michael Faraday
Perception quotes by Lahiri Mahasaya
#108. Solve all your problems through meditation. Exchange unprofitable religious speculations for actual God-contact. Clear your mind of dogmatic theological debris; let in the fresh, healing waters of direct perception. Attune yourself to the active inner Guidance; the Divine Voice has the answer to every dilemma of life. Through man's ingenuity for getting himself into trouble appears to be endless, the Infinite Succor is no less resourceful. #Quote by Lahiri Mahasaya

Perception quotes by Mike Carey
#112. Control what people believe, and you control what they do. Who they are. The world is only the aggregate of human perception. Stories are scalpels that allow us to operate on those perceptions. #Quote by Mike Carey
Perception quotes by Will Wright
#113. It's rewarding to be able to change people's perceptions of reality, ... They just see their environment in a different way. They have a kind of different-colored glasses that they can see their world in. To me, that's really cool - when games can change you. #Quote by Will Wright
Perception quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#114. Some people look for the obvious and make decisions based on that. However, sensitive people look for the subtle things in life. They observe what is missed, overlooked and rarely observed by others. They dwell at a deeper level of perception that clings to signs, body language and what is left unspoken. They are observers that will trust their instinct first over any fact or well delivered speech. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Perception quotes by William Walker Atkinson
#115. Remember first, last and always, that before you can remember, or recollect, you must first perceive; and that perception is possible only through attention, and responds in degree to the latter. Therefore, it has truly been said that: "The great Art of Memory is Attention. #Quote by William Walker Atkinson
Perception quotes by Frederick Lenz
#116. Find a teacher of Tantric Zen and study with them because it is transference of awareness, a sharing of the perception of the beauty of life. #Quote by Frederick Lenz

Perception quotes by Stephen Fry
#119. Music was a kind of penetration. Perhaps absorption is a less freighted word. The penetration or absorption of everything into itself. I don't know if you have ever taken LSD, but when you do so the doors of perception, as Aldous Huxley, Jim Morrison and their adherents ceaselessly remind us, swing wide open. That is actually the sort of phrase, unless you are William Blake, that only makes sense when there is some LSD actually swimming about inside you. In the cold light of the cup of coffee and banana sandwich that are beside me now it appears to be nonsense, but I expect you to know what it is taken to mean. LSD reveals the whatness of things, their quiddity, their essence. The wateriness of water is suddenly revealed to you, the carpetness of carpets, the woodness of wood, the yellowness of yellow, the fingernailness of fingernails, the allness of all, the nothingness of all, the allness of nothing. For me music gives access to everyone of these essences, but at a fraction of the social or financial cost of a drug and without the need to cry 'Wow!' all the time, which is LSD's most distressing and least endearing side effects.
...Music in the precision of its form and the mathematical tyranny of its laws, escapes into an eternity of abstraction and an absurd sublime that is everywhere and nowhere at once. The grunt of rosin-rubbed catgut, the saliva-bubble blast of a brass tube, the sweaty-fingered squeak on a guitar fret, all that physicality, all that clumsy 'music #Quote by Stephen Fry

Perception quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#121. When it repudiates a past paradigm, a scientific community simultaneously renounces, as a fit subject for professional scrutiny, most of the books and articles in which that paradigm had been embodied. Scientific education makes use of no equivalent for the art museum or the library of classics, and the result is a sometimes drastic distortion in the scientist's perception of his discipline's past. More than the practitioners of other creative fields, he comes to see it as leading in a straight line to the discipline's present vantage. In short, he comes to see it as progress. No alternative is available to him while he remains in the field. #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Perception quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#122. Before I only wanted to change the world. I still want that, but it was ironic how I never wanted to change myself. Yet that's where revolutions start! And it's the only way revolutions can continue, if we keep looking inward, looking at how others might see us. That's what happened when I met Sofia. I saw myself the way she saw me. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Perception quotes by Christopher Langan

Perception quotes by Edward De Bono
#124. Being right is not too difficult. Your choose your perception. You select your information. You leave out what does not suit you. You drag in some general-purpose value words. You throw in a sneer or two about the opposition, and you are a fine fellow who made a fine speech. #Quote by Edward De Bono
Perception quotes by Ayn Rand
#125. Those who tell you that man is unable to perceive a reality undistorted by his senses, mean that they are unwilling to perceive a reality undistorted by their feelings. "Things as they are" are things as perceived by your mind; divorce them from reason and they become "things as perceived by your wishes. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Perception quotes by David Baldacci
#126. He earned a national reputation managing large political campaigns, turning them into media-driven extravaganzas with emphasis on sound bites and perception over any kind of substance, and his win rate was astonishingly high. That probably said more for the gullibility of the modern voter than the high standards of the modern candidate, Michelle thought. #Quote by David Baldacci
Perception quotes by Lesslie Newbigin
#127. Modern science has placed in human hands the power to do things that were previously unimaginable. Technology, the development of ever more sophisticated
means for achieving any end we choose, dominates modern and modernized societies. But there is a growing perception that science and technology are no substitute for wisdom - for the power to discern what ends are in accordance with the truth and the power to judge rightly between alternative ends. #Quote by Lesslie Newbigin
Perception quotes by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
#128. O son of Kunti, the nonpermanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed. #Quote by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Perception quotes by Dalai Lama
#129. The universe that we inhabit and our shared perception of it are the results of a common karma. Likewise, the places that we will experience in future rebirths will be the outcome of the karma that we share with the other beings living there. The actions of each of us, human or nonhuman, have contributed to the world in which we live. We all have a common responsibility for our world and are connected with everything in it. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Perception quotes by T.F. Hodge
#130. Quite often it's not about what is said, but what isn't. And even when it's spoken, read between the lines. Listening with the heart is just as important as hearing with the mind. #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Perception quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#131. As often happens between people who have chosen different ways, each of them, while rationally justifying the other's activity, despised it in his heart. To each of them it seemed that the life he led was the only real life, and the one his friend led was a mere illusion. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Perception quotes by Naomi Wolf
#132. Today a woman must ignore her reflection in the eyes of her lover, since he might admire her, and seek it in the gaze of the God of Beauty, in whose perception she is never complete. #Quote by Naomi Wolf
Perception quotes by Donna Grant
#133. It hadn't been Druid magic. It had been the power of a Warrior. There was only one Warrior who she knew could alter a person's perception of their surroundings with such ease. "Phelan," she murmured. His power was so great, she and her wyrran had thought they were being attacked by at least a dozen Warriors. Their claws had felt real as they scoured her skin, their roars loud to her ears. #Quote by Donna Grant

#143. We limit our success when we mistake the limits of our perception for reality. #Quote by Bill Crawford
Perception quotes by Jenni Schaefer
#144. My job is not to worry about what everyone else thinks about me but to discover what I think. If I actually want to know what someone else thinks, my job is then to ask that person. More often than not, however, it isn't important to know. It's okay if people are mad at me, and it's okay if people think I'm a complete idiot - as long as I'm doing my best. Just because certain people might have judgments about me, it does not mean they have authority over me. To truly form my own life, I had to ask questions like 'What are my needs? And 'What are my thoughts?' I had to acknowledge both my strengths and my weaknesses. I had to form my own opinions based on my reality instead of someone else's. #Quote by Jenni Schaefer
Perception quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#145. In his book The Captive Mind, written in 1951-2 and published in the West in 1953, the Polish poet and essayist Czeslaw Milosz paid Orwell one of the greatest compliments that one writer has ever bestowed upon another. Milosz had seen the Stalinisation of Eastern Europe from the inside, as a cultural official. He wrote, of his fellow-sufferers:

A few have become acquainted with Orwell's 1984; because it is both difficult to obtain and dangerous to possess, it is known only to certain members of the Inner Party. Orwell fascinates them through his insight into details they know well, and through his use of Swiftian satire. Such a form of writing is forbidden by the New Faith because allegory, by nature manifold in meaning, would trespass beyond the prescriptions of socialist realism and the demands of the censor. Even those who know Orwell only by hearsay are amazed that a writer who never lived in Russia should have so keen a perception into its life.

Only one or two years after Orwell's death, in other words, his book about a secret book circulated only within the Inner Party was itself a secret book circulated only within the Inner Party. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Perception quotes by San Juan De La Cruz
#146. For one single affection remaining in the soul, or any one matter to which the mind clings either habitually or actually, is sufficient to prevent all perception and all communication of the tender and interior sweetness of the spirit of love, which contains within itself all sweetness supremely. #Quote by San Juan De La Cruz
Perception quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#147. From all aspects of human perception, you truly are your brain. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Perception quotes by James Gleick
#148. The brain does not own any direct copies of stuff in the world. There is no library of forms and ideas against which to compare the images of perception. Information is stored in a plastic way, allowing fantastic juxtapositions and leaps of imagination. Some chaos exists out there, and the brain seems to have more flexibility than classical physics in finding the order in it. #Quote by James Gleick
Perception quotes by Jandy Nelson
#149. A moment later, Noah's flying through the air, arms outstretched like he's on the cross. I feel a surge of adrenaline.

And then what always happens: He slows down. I can't explain it, but it takes my brother forever to hit the surface of the water. I blink a few times at him suspended there midair as if on a tight rope. I've come to think either he has a way with gravity or I'm seriously missing more than a few buttons. I did read once that anxiety can significantly alter space-time perception. #Quote by Jandy Nelson
Perception quotes by Sheila Matharu
#150. Don't the stories we tell shape the views of our listeners? You ask me about Darkness, but whose Darkness do you know? Why was he presented to you?" asked Nagasaki dispassionately.
She did not reply, startled by the unexpected answer. His questions confused her, and it suddenly occurred to her that, perhaps, her dreams have been orchestrated by someone. #Quote by Sheila Matharu
Perception quotes by Lindsey Rietzsch
#151. Think about people in your own life who you have envied for one reason or another. It may surprise you to know that they do not see themselves the way that you do. Maybe they are all smiles on the outside but have personal struggles and trials that you would never guess from first glance. #Quote by Lindsey Rietzsch
Perception quotes by Oliver Sacks
#152. Transient states of depersonalisation are appreciably commoner during migraine auras. Freud reminds us that " ... the ego is first and foremost a body-ego ... the mental projection of the surface of the body." The sense of "self" appears to be based, fundamentally, on a continuous inference from the stability of body-image, the stability of outward perceptions, and the stability of time-perception. Feelings of ego-dissolution readily and promptly occur if there is serious disorder or instability of body-image, external perception, or time-perception, and all of these, as we have seen, may occur during the course of a migraine aura. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Perception quotes by Padma Viswanathan

Perception quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#155. It was a place as blank as a sheet of paper. It was the place I had always been looking for... Flat expanses would call to me... These are the places where the desert is most itself: stark, open, free, an invitation to wander, a laboratory of perception, scale, light, a place where loneliness has a luxurious flavor... #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Perception quotes by Frederick Lenz

Perception quotes by Peter F. Hamilton
#157. People are put off by the perception of science fiction, and it doesn't help if you've got references to quantum this and quantum that on the first page, and people think, 'This isn't for me,' and chuck it. I'm probably a pretty bad offender, given how far in the future some of my stuff is. #Quote by Peter F. Hamilton
Perception quotes by Steven Redhead

Perception quotes by Eric Davis

Perception quotes by Theodore J. Nottingham
#160. Intentionality is actually the first step toward authentic spiritual awakening and the discovery of new horizons of understanding and wisdom. Intentionality is that baby step that opens the doors of perception. It requires an effort of sustained attention and commitment which is rare in our time, as our minds are distracted and reshaped by the rapid-fire stimulus of media through every possible venue. We are each responsible for reining in our attention, taking command of this power of focused awareness, and purposefully choosing how we will live the moments of our lives. We can waste and dissipate them, like leaking cisterns that can hold no water as the prophet Jeremiah said in ancient times, or we can center ourselves intentionally and live fully in the present moment which then opens a meaningful path into the future, even when our plans are not entirely clear. Intentionality calls forth the best of our human nature and all its potential. It all begins with a decision to live in such a way, a decision that we refuse to betray. We then become useful to the Universe and to our fellow human beings. That is how bliss enters our lives. #Quote by Theodore J. Nottingham
Perception quotes by Philippa Gregory
#161. I listen with the air of an eager disciple as he propounds things that I have thought ever since I began my studies. Now he is glancing into books that I have read and hidden for my own safety, and he tells me the things that strike him as if they are a great novelty and I should learn them from him. Little Lady Jane Grey knows these opinions, Princess Elizabeth has read them; I taught them both myself. But now I sit beside the king and exclaim when he describes the blindingly obvious, I admire his discovery of the widely known, and I remark on his perception. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Perception quotes by Osama Bin Laden
#162. Any thief or criminal or robber who enters another country in order to steal should expect to be exposed to murder at any time. For the American forces to expect anything from me personally reflects a very narrow perception. #Quote by Osama Bin Laden

Perception quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#171. Magic is the power within oneself. You have enough strength, exertion and energy to view things as they are, personally, properly, and directly. You have the chance to experience the brightness of life and the haziness of life, which is also a source of power. The fantastically sharp-edged quality of life can be experienced personally and directly. There is a powerful sense of perception available to you. #Quote by Chogyam Trungpa
Perception quotes by John F. Kennedy

Perception quotes by Derek Landy
#174. The fact is that we have no way of knowing if the person who we think we are is at the core of our being. Are you a decent girl with the potential to someday become an evil monster, or are you an evil monster that thinks it's a decent girl?"
"Wouldn't I know which one I was?"

Perception quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#178. I don't know which is worse - to have a bad teacher or no teacher at all. In any case, I believe the teacher's work should be largely negative. He can't put the gift into you, but if he finds it there, he can try to keep it from going in an obviously wrong direction. We can learn how not to write, but this is a discipline that does not simply concern writing itself but concerns the whole intellectual life. A mind cleared of false emotion and false sentiment and egocentricity is going to have at least those roadblocks removed from its path. If you don't think cheaply, then there at least won't be the quality of cheapness in your writing, even though you may not be able to write well. The teacher can try to weed out what is positively bad, and this should be the aim of the whole college. Any discipline can help your writing: logic, mathematics, theology, and of course and particularly drawing. Anything that helps you to see, anything that makes you look. The writer should never be ashamed of staring. There is nothing that doesn't require his attention. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Perception quotes by Henry James
#179. Mr. Morris's poem is ushered into the world with a very florid birthday speech from the pen of the author of the too famous Poems and Ballads, - a circumstance, we apprehend, in no small degree prejudicial to its success. But we hasten to assure all persons whom the knowledge of Mr. Swinburne's enthusiasm may have led to mistrust the character of the work, that it has to our perception nothing in common with this gentleman's own productions, and that his article proves very little more than that his sympathies are wiser than his performance. If Mr. Morris's poem may be said to remind us of the manner of any other writer, it is simply of that of Chaucer; and to resemble Chaucer is a great safeguard against resembling Swinburne. #Quote by Henry James
Perception quotes by Kate Millett
#180. And what is boredom? Perhaps the inability to find meaning, to complete a perception, to arrive at an understanding: partly grasped, but forever just out of reach. It is not lack of interest, but interest frustrated, cut off, imperfectly held. So says the Chronicle today. But for me it is the fear of emptiness. #Quote by Kate Millett
Perception quotes by Gautama Buddha
#181. First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words;
Second, rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher;
Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation;
And fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Perception quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

#183. It ain't as bad as you think. It will look better in the morning. #Quote by Colin Powell
Perception quotes by Nhat Hanh
#184. The Buddha always reminds us that our afflictions, including our fear and our desiring, are born from our ignorance. That is why in order to dissipate fear, we have to remove wrong perception. #Quote by Nhat Hanh
Perception quotes by John Steinbeck
#185. A twitch at the controls could swerve the cat', but the driver's hands could not twitch because the monster that built the tractor, the monster that sent the tractor out, had somehow got into the driver's hands, into his brain and muscle, had goggled him and muzzled him - goggled his mind, muzzled his speech, goggled his perception, muzzled his protest. He could not see the land as it was, he could not smell the land as it smelled; his feet did not stamp the clods or feel the warmth and power of the earth. He sat in an iron seat and stepped on iron pedals. He could not cheer or beat or curse or encourage the extension of his power, and because of this he could not cheer or whip or curse or encourage himself. He did not know or own or trust or beseech the land. If a seed dropped did not germinate, it was nothing. If the young thrusting plant withered in drought or drowned in a flood of rain, it was no more to the driver than to the tractor. He #Quote by John Steinbeck
Perception quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#186. You can never know if a person forgives you when you wrong them. Therefore it is existentially important to you. It is a question you are intensely concerned with. Neither can you know whether a person loves you. It's something you just have to believe or hope. But these things are more important to you than the fact that the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180 degrees. You don't think about the law of cause and effect or about modes of perception when you are in the middle of your first kiss. #Quote by Jostein Gaarder
Perception quotes by Toba Beta
#187. The clarity of perception
makes reality look as it is. #Quote by Toba Beta
Perception quotes by Frederick Lenz
#188. You have been programmed, brainwashed to see life in very specific forms. Life is endless and we are a body of perception. We are an awareness that is endless. The universe is only perception. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Perception quotes by Michael Tianias
#189. It's all a matter of perception.
What one person deems to be important may be just as equally unimportant to another.
What one deems to be right may seem very wrong to someone else.
Your moral compass and values may not always be totally in sync with others you meet.
In the end it's all just your perception of how you choose to live your life and this may not always win you friends. In fact it may gain you some enemies.
Live your life how you choose to and if people don't like the way you do things then disagree if you must, but be nice & be respectful and then if you must, move on and leave it all behind you.
It's your life after all and only you can live it. Choose your path and set your compass then start walking. #Quote by Michael Tianias
Perception quotes by John Locke
#190. Consciousness is the perception of what passes in man's own mind. #Quote by John Locke
Perception quotes by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
#191. ... every feeling is the perception of a truth ... #Quote by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
Perception quotes by John Green
#192. The perception of who you are is more important than who you are. You are what other people think of you. #Quote by John Green
Perception quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#193. The troops and their ladies had first drunk champagne. There were also remains of sandwiches, and I stepped on one, which I think was either cucumber or watercress. I scraped it off on the curbing, left it there for germs. I'll tell you this, though: No germ is going to leave the Solar System eating sissy stuff like that.
Plutonium! Now there's the stuff to put hair on a microbe's chest. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Perception quotes by Gary Zukav
#194. Reverence is a perception of the soul. Reverence is a natural aspect of authentic empowerment because the soul reveres all of Life. When the personality is aligned with the soul, it cannot perceive life except with reverence. Approaching life with reverence is a step toward moving the personality into alignment with the soul because it brings an aspect of the soul directly into the physical environment. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Perception quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#195. I love you because you loved me first. Yet you love me, saying I loved you first. Funny, our love thrives believing the other person started it. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Perception quotes by Scott Stossel
#196. People who suffer from anxiety are very good at hiding it. That can often be a contributor to the anxiety because the gap between the internal perception and the external impression can feel so large. #Quote by Scott Stossel
Perception quotes by Giordano Bruno
#197. There is a single general space, a single vast immensity which we may freely call void: in it are unnumerable globes like this on which we live and grow, this space we declare to be infinite, since neither reason, convenience, sense-perception nor nature assign to it a limit. #Quote by Giordano Bruno
Perception quotes by Deirdre Madden
#198. I suppose what's similar about being on actor and being a priest is a certain perception of time. Eternity is a priest's business. But we all live in time. And what I'm doing is trying to make people aware of how the two coexist. That's what religion is, keeping that sense of eternity while being in time; trying to live accordingly. The Kingdom of God is here, now. That's what that's all about. #Quote by Deirdre Madden
Perception quotes by Judy Byington
#199. In the far reaches of her brain a storehouse of demeaning events evidently opened a door for Extra Sensory Perception experiences to enter. #Quote by Judy Byington
Perception quotes by Walter Benjamin
#200. The adjustment of reality to the masses and of the masses to reality is a process of unlimited scope, as much for thinking as for perception. #Quote by Walter Benjamin
