Doubt carries a microscope; faith packs a lens of hope.

Only love sees what hides from hate.

The wise know they are blind, and see; fools are sure they see, and are blind.

As the astronomer scans the sky for galaxies, so the wise scan experience for insight.

We visit art galleries; they teach us how to see reality.

The natural scene informs the screen.

Look longer into people’s eys; pry shorter into their lives.

Where one sees an atom another sees a universe.

White light contains all the colors, wise judgment all the facts.

Most people see the future through the past; visionaries see pure future.

As the cat misjudges the leap so the student overestimates her ability.

The foolish watch a bad man die and rejoice; the wise see him die and grieve.

Patriotism sees only one country; wisdom sees many countries that can live as one.

Modern world leaders don’t know how to sit down and talk, only how to rise up and shoot.
