The Eyes Choose

We don’t see things as they are,
we see things as we are.
– Ana├»s Nin

If you paint in your mind a picture of
bright and happy expectations,
you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal.
– Norman Vincent Peale

The world will persist in exhibiting before you
what you persist in affirming the world is.
– Emma Curtis Hopkins

We see what we expect to see.
If we believe the world to be violent and ugly,
we see violence and ugliness.
If we believe the world to be a gift,
we see rainbows, and butterflies, and smiles,
and hear babies cooing, and roosters greeting the dawn.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
