A Quote by David Gardener on perception, reality, reflection, and world

What we perceive as reality in the so-called outer world is literally a reflection of, and therefore secondary in importance to, the inner workings of our own consciousness.

A Quote by Dave Sim on accuracy, darkness, ideas, justice, and reality

These are ideas. I could say that they just came to me, but it would be more accurate to say that I went to them. Ideas - and new connections between ideas - lead you away from commonly held perceptions of reality. Ideas lead you out here. Ideas lead you into the darkness.

Dave Sim (1957 -)

A Quote by Dave Sim on beauty, illusions, mind, purity, and reality

Gone is the blinding glow in his hands - gone, too, is the illusion of purity and beauty! In it's place all that remains is mind-numbing, spine-chilling reality!"

A Quote by Dame Edith Sitwell on dreams, meaning, reality, and world

Rhythm is one of the principal translators between dream and reality. Rhythm might be described as, to the world of sound, what light is to the world of sight. It shapes and gives new meaning. Rhythm was described by Schopenhauer as melody deprived of its pitch.

Imagination is nostalgia for the past, the absent; it is the liquid solution in which art develops the snapshot of reality.

History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illumines reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life, and brings us tidings of antiquity.

A Quote by Charles Hermite on creation, divinity, existence, independence, justice, mind, mistakes, reality, and world

There exists, if I am not mistaken, an entire world which is the totality of mathematical truths, to which we have access only with our mind, just as a world of physical reality exists, the one like the other independent of ourselves, both of divine creation.

A Quote by Charlene Spretnak on change, direction, experience, illusions, life, nature, people, perception, reality, sacred, and separation

There are sacred moments in life when we experience in rational and very direct ways that separation, the boundary between ourselves and other people and between ourselves and Nature, is illusion. Oneness is reality. We can experience that stasis is illusory and that reality is continual flux and change on very subtle and also on gross levels of perception . . .
