Quote of the Day: “We see the world not as it is, but as we are.”

without comments

We see the world not as it is, but as we are.

While this has been attributed to Anaïs Nin and the Talmud, the earliest I found the quote first used is in the book The Power of Art in 1951, by John Martyn Warbeke. But, he is apparently quoting someone else, yet doesn’t give an attribution to the quote.  More recently this quote was popularized by Stephen R. Covey in the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
