Man considers himself center of will and a center of perception. Will and perception are not separate but only appear so to the mind. The unity which appears to the mind to exert twin functions of will and perception is called Kia by magicians. Sometimes it is called the spirit, or soul, or life force, instead.

Peter J. Carroll

Perception creates behavior. Perception encourages behavior. And because this institution--this artifice--continues to socially reinforce patterns of perception and behavior, if this behavior is destructive, it may not be a bad idea to eliminate or curtail the institution.

Derrick Jensen

Language is not a handmaiden to perception; it is perception; it gives shape to what would otherwise be inert and dead.

Stanley Fish

Every perception of colour is an illusion.. ..we do not see colours as they really are. In our perception they alter one another. (remark around 1949, when he started his ‘Homage to the Square’ series, fh)

Joseph Albers

Every emotion, from despair all of the way up to ecstasy; from complete Connection to who-you-really-are, all the way to pinching yourself off pretty severely, all of those emotions are about your perception of freedom, or your perception of bondage—every one of them.

Esther Hicks
