A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees. -- William Blake, Proverbs of Hell


"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself."

-- William Blake, The Letters, 1799
