Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

Robert Bresson

A real Directioner is, although he has not seen us not lose hope.

Zayn Malik

We are for ourselves in large measure what we see and have seen of ourselves reflected back to us by our friends, our loves, and our enemies.

Carlo Rovelli

If we give a description of the world that ignores point of view, that is solely "from the outside" - of space, of time, of a subject - we may be able to say many things but we lose certain crucial aspects of the world. Because the world that we have been given is the world seen from within it, not from without.

Carlo Rovelli

In the mountains, we see a valley covered by a sea of white clouds. The surface of the clouds gleams, immaculate. We start to walk toward the valley. The air becomes more humid, then less clear; the sky is no longer blue. We find ourselves in a fog. Where did the well-defined surface of the clouds go? It vanished. Its disappearance is gradual; there is no surface that separates the fog from the sparse air of the heights. Was it an illusion? No, it was a view from afar. Come to think of it, it`s like this with all surfaces. This dense marble table would look like a fog if I were shrunk to a small enough, atomic scale. Everything in the world becomes blurred when seen close up. Where exactly does the mountain end and where do the plains begin? Where does the savannah begin and the desert end? We cut the world into large slices. We think of it in terms of concepts that are meaningful for us, that emerge at a certain scale.

Carlo Rovelli

Sometimes the interpretations I've seen on some of the songs that I've written are a lot more interesting than the input that I put in.

David Bowie

I don`t need no arms around me.
And I don`t need no drugs to calm me.
I have seen the writing on the wall.
Don`t think I need anything at all.
No. Don`t think I`ll need anything at all.
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall.
All in all you were all just bricks in the wall.

Pink Floyd

Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.

Albert Szent-Györgyi

I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious theories of heaven and hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God.

Thomas Edison

Is it more probable that nature should go out of her course or that a man should tell a lie? We have never seen, in our time, nature go out of her course. But we have good reason to believe that millions of lies have been told in the same time. It is therefore at least millions to one that the reporter of a miracle tells a lie.

Thomas Paine

If you can approach the world's complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size, not all that important in the greater scheme of things.

Daniel Dennett

I`ve got the key to my castle in the air, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen.

Louisa May Alcott

All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every time you forgive, the universe changes; every time you reach out and touch a heart or a life, the world changes; with every kindness and service, seen or unseen, my purposes are accomplished and nothing will ever be the same again.

William Paul Young

If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Isaac Newton
