We are funny creatures. We don’t see the stars as they are, so why do we love them? They are not small gold objects, but endless fire. –Saul Bellow
Why do we love things that we perceive as beautiful in our own understanding?
Why do we hate things that we aren’t familiar with?
Our perception is limited. Our experience is short, and our rationality is bounded. And regardless of how much we try, our wisdom is far from complete.
So why do we dare to pass on judgements, when we only know half of the facts?
