The miracle of your mind isn’t that you can see the world as it is. It’s that you can see the world as it isn’t.

About This Quote


Source: "On Being Wrong." TED2011. Mar. 2011. Conference Presentation. Additional Information: This quote tells us that the human mind is remarkable, not because it provides us with a clear and accurate image of the world, but because it distorts the world and allows us to see things that aren't actually there -- in other words, we are gifted with the power of imagination. This quote is from author Kathryn Schulz's 2011 TED Talk about the common misconception that one is always right, and why we shouldn't be so afraid to admit when we are wrong.
