Inspiring Quotes On Perception And Reality

Perception is defined by a belief or opinion, often held by people and based on how things seem. Reality is the state of things as they are or appear to be. Simply put, perception is defined as what we are seeing and reality is defined as what is happening. Check out some powerful quotes on perception and reality here.

“Humans see what they want to see.” – Rick Riordan

“What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are.” – C.S. Lewis

“Life is all about perception. Positive versus negative. Whichever you choose will affect and more than likely reflect your outcomes.” – Sonya Teclai
