Anais Nin, wrote this. "We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."
Wow, what a sentence. All about self perspective. Isn't that the truth. We believe, we perceive through our eyes, and soul, what we need and want.
I have probably read over the years all of Anais Nin's writings, some more than once. I like how her words flow softly at times, but carry a strong meaning.
