One Of Hemingway’s Favorite Quotations. Mine, too.
“The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion— all in one.
John Ruskin, “Modern Painters,” vol. III, part IV, chapter XVI (1856) – John Ruskin
