A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on things, reality, perception, and self

And this do I call immaculate perception of all things: to want nothing else from them, but to be allowed to lie before them as a mirror with a hundred facets.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)

A Quote by William Stafford on talking, hearing, say, rich, things, dulls, reason, and world

The things you do not have to say make you rich.

Saying the things you do not have to say weakens your talk.

Hearing the things you do not have to hear dulls your hearing.

And the things you know before you hear them; these are you and the reason you are in the world.

William Stafford

A Quote by David Berman on language, things, perception, philosophy, linguistics, and psychology

Language is virtually always pathological; hence the solution is to move as fast and far as possible from language to experience, from linguistic to experimental or psychological philosophy. In order to know that we are not in the linguistic maze, we need to determine, according to Berkeley, whether the things we are talking about exist; hence we need to look for the relevant perceptions. For him, this usually means retiring into himself and trying to imagine whether x exists, having formed the best definition possible of x.

The more things I learn the worse it gets. Knowledge might be power, but knowledge can quickly become a brain gone crazy.
