Perspective is Everything

Our perspective influences everything we do. The way we see things, the way we interpret another’s words, the opinions that we form and the way we react to things.

Challenging our perspective can open the door to understanding and compromise, a great asset in pretty much any thing we undertake.

In today’s post I’ve gathered some famous quotes about perspective. I think its such a critically powerful tool when you stop to think that by just one person changing their perspective . . . everything changes.


 Some Perspectives to Ponder:

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand. Most people listen with the intent to reply” ~ Stephen R. Covey

“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – either way you’re right.” ~ Henry Ford

“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. Its not a thing to be waited for, its a thing to be achieved.” ~ William Jennings Bryan

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” ~ Marcel Provost

“More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.” ~ Francois Gautier

“It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.” ~ George Eliot Middlemarch

    Your image is a perfect partner to your words and yes perspective is so important. I like the quotes you’ve chosen but I think my favorite is the one by Marcel Provost….Photography has taught me so much about ‘new eyes’….
