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

Every man takes the limits of is own field of vision for the limits of the world.
Arthur Schopenhauer

Great quotes. I especially like the #1. So true.
Number 3, also rings a bell, but i won't tell who it reminds me of. LOL.

Quote #1 resonates with me, too. I've posted this quote, before, but even if I'm repeating myself, it's valid, and simply another way of stating #1. My yoga teacher told it's an ancient Yogic truth:

"One sees the world as it is, but the world is as one sees it."
