A Quote by Mr. on reality, truth, perception, perspective, framework, and mr prophet


Although there is a universal reality and a universal truth, individual reality and individual truth are merely manipulations you create for yourself out of the data that you choose. True, the data that flows towards any individual is incomplete and each individual builds their reality and truth frameworks from that incomplete data.

A Quote by Margaret Atwood on truth and perspective

What I need is perspective... Perspective is necessay.  Otherwise there are only two dimensions.  Otherwise you live with your face squashed against a wall, everything a huge foreground, of details, close-ups, hairs, the weave of the bedsheet, the molecules of the face.

Margaret Atwood (1939 -)

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, love, perspective, irrationalism, and integralism

Ultimately, love is only possible for humans insofar as they can achieve some comprehension of their place and their duties and their values and their significance within the whole of life, of society, of spirituality, of history, of nature. In all merely partial or fragmentary perspectives, there necessarily remain undigested irrational factors, surds that one is merely tolerating and not truly respecting as essential and integral to the whole of what we are.
