“...mirages are things that aren't really there that you can see very clearly."

"How do you see something that isn't there?"...

"sometimes it's much simpler than seeing things that are"...”
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

“Isn't this everyone's Point of View?" asked Tock, looking around curiously.
"Of course not," replied Alec, sitting himself down on nothing. "It's only mine, and you certainly can't always look at things from someone else's Point of View. For instance, from here that looks like a bucket of water," he said, pointing to a bucket of water; "but from an ant's point of view it's a vast ocean, from an elephant's just a cool drink, and to a fish, of course, it's home. So, you see, the way you see things depends a great deal on where you look at them from.”
Norton Juster

“as long as the answer is right, who cares if the question is wrong? If you want sense, you’ll have to make it yourself.”

“Very serious, very serious. You can't get in without a reason.”

“Words and numbers are of equal value, for in the cloak of knowledge one is warp and the other woof.”
