Revolutionary Multiple Perspectives quotations

Multiple perspectives quote Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Sa

Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.

Flexibility comes from having multiple choices; wisdom comes from having multiple perspectives.

I've always been fascinated by Picasso and how he would look at a single image through multiple perspectives and from separate moments in time. He would look at a woman's face and he would see almost a three-dimensional look even though it was a flat canvas. I thought, well why couldn't we do the same thing with a football play?

Multiple perspectives quote Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

I can't promise my child a life without bias - we're all biased - but I promise to bias my child with multiple perspectives.

The sense of perspective that interaction with multiple cultures gives you I find to be extremely valuable, because it allows you to see the structure of a country with greater clarity, and gives you a sense of mental independence.

... I was reminded of a remark of Willa Cather's, that you can't paint sunlight, you can only paint what it does with shadows on a wall. If you examine a life, as Socrates has been so tediously advising us to do for so many centuries, do you really examine a life, or do you examine the shadows it casts on other lives? Entity or relationships? Objective reality or the vanishing point of a multiple perspective exercise? Prism or the rainbows it refracts? And what if you're the wall? What if you never cast a shadow or rainbow of your own, but have only caught those cast by others?

Multiple perspectives quote Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.

Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.

We frequently hear how essential it is for someone to think "outside the box," but what actually determines one's facility for doing so? In other words, what skills make someone a creative thinker? Typically, creative thinkers can view issues from multiple perspectives, define problems in several different ways, and anticipate likely obstacles. Someone's aptitude for these skills determines how well he or she will perform as a creative thinker.

I think, though, that perspective-awareness may follow from a kind of speaking that also came into my work more recently - the "assay" poems (some labeled that, some not) that engage an abstraction or object from multiple angles.

I can't promise my child a life without bias - we're all biased - but I promise to bias my child with multiple perspectives.
