A Quote by Patrick McBride on sundrops, important, and perspective

A Quote by David Berman on images, mind, perspective, and visual

It would be wrong of me to suppose that just because I can form private mental images, that everyone can. As Francis Galton and William James long ago showed, a small proportion of adults--and some of these extremely intelligent--are unable to form such visual images. Berkeley's point is that it would be equally arrogant for these non-thinkers or non-image formers to claim that everyone is like them in the relevant respect. The temptation to pontificate in that way reveals a narrowness and unwillingness to see the world from another perspective.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on reality, simplicity, and perspective

Of course, any simplification runs the risk of mutilating reality; but it helps us establish perspectives.
