The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled.
Each evening we see the sun set.
We know that the earth is turning away from it.
Yet the knowledge, the explanation, never quite fits the sight.
Berger, J. (1972) Ways of Seeing

Proust, M. (1982) Remembrance of Things Past Volume I
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
Murdoch, I. (1970) A Fairly Honourable Defeat
