“what we do see depends mainly on what we look for”

“What we do see depends mainly on what we look for…In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.”

-John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live In
