Senses
 
Our senses like false glasses show,
Smooth beauty where browes wrinkled are,
And make the cosen’d fancy glow.
            —William Harbington

  The senses are like the sun. The sun makes the heavens invisible and the earth clear; the senses obscure heavenly things and open up earthly ones.
            —Philo Judæus
