Quotes Gary Liked

“The way we see the world is not actually the world in itself. What we see is our idea of it. The truth is, we have no notion of what the world is other than through the veils of our perception.”
Emma Restall Orr, The Wakeful World: Animism, Mind and the Self in Nature

“Not a squalid den of demons and indecency at the back of a beautiful great house, the mind is a vast and ancient wood, the density of its canopy allowing sunlight only now and then to reach through and touch the spiders and mushrooms in the leaf mould of the forest floor. This is who we are.”
Emma Restall Orr, The Wakeful World: Animism, Mind and the Self in Nature
