Richard Seymour: How Beauty Feels

Elaborate on the quote from Anais Nin: “We see things not as they are but as we are”

This quote is saying that we see things through our own eyes, not other people’s. A lot of times, other people try to influence what we think is beautiful, but it is ultimately up to us to decide what is beautiful. Something might be red, but it is about what the color/aspect means to us personally. We perceive things in our own ways that are completely different from what other people might think. The quote accurately depicts this aspect to us humans, explaining how we think when we look at something.
