opinions and perceptions

"Opinions mean nothing; they may be beautiful or ugly, clever or foolish, anyone can embrace or reject them." ~Hermann Hesse, from the book Siddhartha

"It is impossible not to believe what you see, but it is equally impossible to see what you do not believe.  Perceptions are built upon the basis of experience, and experience leads to beliefs.  It is not until beliefs are fixed that perceptions stabilize.  In effect, then, what you believe you do see." ~A Course in Miracles p. 207

"Look into the nature of things. Search out the grounds of your opinions, the for and against." ~Francis Wright

"The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions." ~Leonardo da Vinci

"There are two kinds of fools: those who can't change there opinions and those who won't." ~Josh Billings

"Modern morality is all about perception." ~Rachel Cusk
