- Adelbert von Chamisso

Mind Capabilities

If it's a cliche to say that intellectual curiosity keeps your mind sharp, your senses alert, and your capabilities cutting-edge, that's because it's true.

- Adena Friedman

Young Taste

And so, when I was a young writer I always worked hard on imagery, and I knew that the roots of imagery were the senses - and that if my readers could feel, taste and see what I was talking about, I would be able to tell them a story.

- Adriana Trigiani

Sympathies Helping

Artworks are especially good at helping our psyches in a variety of ways: they rebalance our moods, lend us hope, usher in calm, stretch our sympathies, reignite our senses, and reawaken appreciation.

- Alain de Botton

Complacency About

There's a lot of rage in my head. I like the friction that means there is nothing relaxing about writing a poem. I can't afford to relax in any area of life. You have to keep your senses awake to all the complacency that kicks in - particularly for the English.

- Alice Oswald

Artist Knock

With food, you're the artist; you put the colour in it, you present it to the table and it has the ability to knock out the senses. It can look fabulous, be beautifully presented and smell great and taste good as well.

- Anthony Warlow

Your About

Think about it this way - if you have five senses, and they're all feeding into one place, kind of like a bottleneck, then now your mind has to make decisions of what is important and what is going to be above the radar and what's going to be below the radar.

- Apollo Robbins

Skill Always

There is always a point when one senses one's lack of skill, the doubt.

I'm a very senses-oriented person, and I want to bring readers in on the level of the senses, so they can experience another culture and another place.

- Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Leader Directors

Being on a set where the director has lost control is just sickening. No one goes the extra mile, there's a lot of eye-rolling... it just breeds inertia. If a director is in control, the crew follow their leader. But the second anyone senses the directors are not sure, people just swoop in.

- Christine Vachon

Beauty Part

Beauty must appeal to the senses, must provide us with immediate enjoyment, must impress us or insinuate itself into us without any effort on our part.

- Claude Debussy

Muslim Modern-Day

Most of my Muslim friends are politically liberal in a lot of senses. They are far more open-minded than the Christian circles I grew up in, which are, you know, actually scarier. That said, too, I still identify with the teachings of Jesus. I don't think they resemble or relate to modern-day Christianity.

- Craig Thompson

Humor Them

My fam is just a regular family. But all of them have great senses of humor.

Some Saw

Some of the best rock shows I ever saw were those appealing to all your senses.

- David Cook

Chapter Use

I use these senses - touch, sight, feel and smell - as triggers that invite readers or propel them into the scene. The trick is not to make it obvious. I've written an entire chapter about this in my book, 'The Successful Novelist.' I've lectured about it extensively, but have yet to see many people pick up on it.

- David Morrell

Plagiarism Nearly

In many senses, creativity and 'plagiarism' are nearly indivisible.

Meditation is the practice of giving something your full attention and awareness. When I eat a truffle, for example, I focus fully on it and involve as many of my senses as possible.

- Dean Ornish

Believe Obtain

I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.

- Jim Morrison

Like Involves

Blake said that the body was the soul's prison unless the five senses are fully developed and open. He considered the senses the 'windows of the soul.' When sex involves all the senses intensely, it can be like a mystical experence.

- Jim Morrison

Bad Trump

Trump, in the crinkling of an eye, senses better than anyone the insecurity of people, that nobody knows whether anything is good or bad until they are told, and he is quite willing to tell them immediately.

Me Growing

In 1792, my Sister told me, I was growing out of my senses.

- Joanna Southcott

Strong Chinatown

Southeast Asia food uses many different types of spices which are quite new to me, like the curry leaves which I saw at the Kreta Ayer wet market in Chinatown. With such spices used in cooking, this usually imparts a strong aroma to Southeast Asian food, which appeals to the senses.

- Joel Robuchon

Objects Our

The essential attribute of a new sense is, not the perception of external objects or influences which ordinarily do not act upon the senses, but that external causes should excite in it a new and peculiar kind of sensation different from all the sensations of our five senses.

- Johannes P. Muller

Familiarity Our

Snow isn't just pretty. It also cleanses our world and our senses, not just of the soot and grime of a Fife mining town but also of a kind of weary familiarity, a taken-for-granted quality to which our eyes are all too susceptible.

- John Burnside

Nature Healed

I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.

- John Burroughs

Will Ingredient

Part of what makes a great chef is the ability to adapt, cook, and to taste. A great chef will use all their food knowledge, food memories, and senses to work with each ingredient and apply themselves to the dish they are creating.

- Johnny Iuzzini

Through Prolific

My father was a world-class scientist and my mother was a prolific painter. I could see that my parents had completely different ways of knowing and understanding the world, and relating to it. My father approached things through scientific inquiry and exploration, while my mother experienced things through her emotions and senses.

- Jon Kabat-Zinn

Which Thus

Both our senses and our passions are a supply to the imperfection of our nature; thus they show that we are such sort of creatures as to stand in need of those helps which higher orders of creatures do not.

- Joseph Butler

Design Architects

We experience every space in five senses, so it's strange that architects design just for the eyes.

Beauty Will

It is, finally, a word is untimely in three different senses, and bearing it as one's treasure will not win one anyone's favours; one rather risks finding oneself outside everyone's camp... Beauty is the word that shall be our first.

More Touched

Touch is the mother of the senses. Not only are women more sensitive when they touch, but they're also more sensitive to being touched.

Sense Of Humor Own

John Lennon, who was a good friend of mine, he had one of the best senses of humor of any human being. And Keith Richards, fantastic sense of humor. They were smart, sharp. They had their own thoughts on matters.

- Bobby Keys

Through Cabin

If you are not used to the g-forces, it can really mess with you. There's this overwhelming power that sweeps through the cabin. Your senses get pegged out. You're looking for comfort or safety but you won't find any. All you can do is keep breathing.

- Brian Binnie

Thought Tell

Science is empirical, all about physical senses that tell us about the world. But physical senses are not the only senses we have. Nobody has ever seen a thought. Nobody has ever seen a feeling. And yet thoughts and feelings are where we live our lives most immediately, and science cannot connect with that.

- Huston Smith

Knowledge Reason

All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.

Been Cities

Twitter has been my life's work in many senses. It started with a fascination with cities and how they work, and what's going on in them right now.

- Jack Dorsey

Through Soothing

In a world where so much happens through computer screens, making a meal by hand, touching the raw materials, feeling your way through a recipe, tasting, adjusting, engaging all the senses, can be a soothing release.

Like Some

There are some things that are real, that you can see, that you can observe, like the moon, and grass and things. But for ideas to become real, they have to be played on your senses.

Music is gathering. Taking our scattered thoughts and senses and coalescing us back into our core. Music is powerful. The first few chords can change us where no self-help books can.

- Jane Siberry

Leash Our

We live on the leash of our senses.

- Diane Ackerman

Distance Spell

The further we distance ourselves from the spell of the present, explored by our senses, the harder it will be to understand and protect nature's precarious balance, let alone the balance of our own human nature.

- Diane Ackerman

Language Innocent

It's a daily miracle to see a child grow and develop all the senses and language and speech and faculties, and they're so much fun and they're so delightful and they're so innocent. It just stops your heart every time; I can't get enough of it.

- Jann Wenner

Cause Brought

The torrent of centuries rolling over the human race, has continually brought new perfections, the cause of which, ever active though unseen, is found in the demands made by our senses, which always in their turns demand to be occupied.

- Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Very Unlocking

Our senses are indeed our doors and windows on this world, in a very real sense the key to the unlocking of meaning and the wellspring of creativity.

- Jean Houston

Blind Taste

Taste is one of the five senses, and the man who tells us with priggish pride that he does not care what he eats is merely boasting of his sad deficiency: he might as well be proud of being deaf or blind, or, owing to a perpetual cold in the head, of being devoid of the sense of smell.

- E. F. Benson

Think May

The heart may think it knows better: the senses know that absence blots people out. We really have no absent friends.

- Elizabeth Bowen

Through Own

If we see a sad rain, it doesn't mean the rain is sad, but it means we see it. That's an easily dismissible kind of projection. But what I'm struggling to say, is that we take that rain in through our own hearts and emotions and senses and skin, and all those filters have an impact.

- Karen Joy Fowler

Through Project

We perceive through our senses a person, a situation or an event, and in an instant, we project our mental models - our fears, background and experiences - onto that perception. This often results in cognitive errors, which means we judge and respond incorrectly.

- Elizabeth Thornton

Show Works

And when they encounter works of art which show that using new media can lead to new experiences and to new consciousness, and expand our senses, our perception, our intelligence, our sensibility, then they will become interested in this music.

- Karlheinz Stockhausen

Worlds Entire

The problem with people who are afraid of imagination, of fantasy, is that their world becomes so narrow that I don't see how they can imagine beyond what their senses can verify. We know from science that there are entire worlds that our senses can't verify.

- Katherine Paterson

Blindness Whole

The plain man is familiar with blindness and deafness, and knows from his everyday experience that the look of things is influenced by his senses; but it never occurs to him to regard the whole world as the creation of his senses.

- Ernst Mach

Development Own

Without renouncing the support of physics, it is possible for the physiology of the senses, not only to pursue its own course of development, but also to afford to physical science itself powerful assistance.

- Ernst Mach

Engaged I Write

I find the experience of keeping a journal much more creative on paper than on a computer. When I write, I'm physically immersed in the world and slow down, whereas on screen, I use my senses in a less engaged way - and I skim more.

- Keri Smith

Other Sensing

My security comes from my senses, my sensing the direction I should go and suddenly I felt out of tune, out of step with what other people wanted or what other people expected of me.

- Kim Novak

TV Held

My style can't be held within a pixel medium. Like, it needs to be performed in a living, breathing space. People need to have all their senses ready to take on my comedy, and unfortunately, TV alienates at least their sense of touch, taste, smell.

- Kristen Schaal

Art Through

I've come to believe in the primacy of form - the notion of art seducing you through your senses, through your eyeballs.

- Fred Tomaselli

Through Whole

The whole memorial is for different senses... seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling. I probably would have come up with something different if I had not lived through it.

- Lawrence Halprin

Reason Fail

Where the senses fail us, reason must step in.

- Galileo Galilei

Other Profoundly

'Mosaic' is about what we see and what we don't see. I learned how people can develop other senses to compensate for a missing one when I was a child. My best friend, Carol, who is profoundly deaf, saved me from an approaching car that she 'heard' when I didn't.

- Gayle Lynds

Back Been

'Rent' opened up my heart, my senses. I was never the same. I hadn't been back in that place in the same way since. 'Hamilton' put me back in that place.

- Leslie Odom, Jr.

Flowers Reason

There are strange flowers of reason to match each error of the senses.

- Louis Aragon

Think About

We take the sense of touch for granted. Think about it: Without it, you're missing one of the basic senses that enables you to interact with the world.

- Louis B. Rosenberg

Description Another

Even in the lives of fishes, sensation is seldom a matter of one thing or another. Senses overlap. The lines between them often tend to be blurred, and the best that we can manage, by way of description from the outside, is to say that the senses of fishes appear to dominate one at a time.

- Lyall Watson

Very Studied

I never studied interior design, but I'm a creative person. And what we surround ourselves with is very important - what makes you feel happy, what makes your senses feel good.

- Lynn Whitfield

City I Think

I think Paris smells not just sweet but melancholy and curious, sometimes sad but always enticing and seductive. She's a city for the all senses, for artists and writers and musicians and dreamers, for fantasies, for long walks and wine and lovers and, yes, for mysteries.

- M. J. Rose

Behind Anesthetic

If you aren't creeped out by the No Birth Control Left Behind rhetoric of the White House and Planned Parenthood, you aren't listening closely enough. The anesthetic of progressive benevolence always dulls the senses. Wake up.

- Michelle Malkin

Civilization Lot

I don't believe civilization can do a lot more than educate a person's senses.

- Grace Paley

Idea How

I have no idea how things work in the life beyond what we know with our senses.

- Mimi Kennedy

Use Evolved

We've evolved over millions of years to sense the world around us. We use our five natural senses to perceive information. But the huge amount of information mankind has accumulated and stored online cannot be perceived by these senses.

- Pranav Mistry

Other Artistry

When people are deprived of a sense, their other senses get heightened. If you're culturally devoid of something - of weather, of artistry, of interesting architecture, all the way down the line to culture itself - you're either forced to give in and get that car dealership, or you manufacture those things for yourself.

- Tim Burton

Been Had

Stanley Kubrick, I had been told, hates interviews. It's hard to know what to expect of the man if you've only seen his films. One senses in those films painstaking craftsmanship, a furious intellect at work, a single-minded devotion.

- Tim Cahill

Disorder Doth

For disorder obstructs: besides, it doth disgust life, distract the appetities, and yield no true relish to the senses.

- Margaret Cavendish

Music Soothe

When music fails to agree to the ear, to soothe the ear and the heart and the senses, then it has missed the point.

- Maria Callas

Sensual Artists

Sensual is everything that refers to the delight of the senses. And that's what artists do, is stimulate the senses in any possible way.

- Shakira

Themselves Apply

Kids are really inspired to not just apply senses to robots and machines, but to try them on themselves.

- Neil Harbisson

Very Extend

If we extend our senses, then, consequently, we will extend our knowledge. It's really very basic.

- Neil Harbisson

Compare Other

We should find inspiration in the senses that already exist and try to copy them and apply them to us. If we compare our senses to the senses of other animals and species that we don't have, we can get ideas for new abilities that we can adapt to humans by applying cybernetics to the body.

- Neil Harbisson

Trust Wholly

The senses deceive from time to time, and it is prudent never to trust wholly those who have deceived us even once.

- Rene Descartes

Chewing Gum Your

Chewing gum actually lowers your cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for stress. But chewing gum doesn't just reduce stress, it also makes you more alert and improves your performance in memory-oriented tasks. It does so by increasing the blood flow to your brain and alerting your senses.

- Travis Bradberry

Nature Literally

We tend to block off many of our senses when we're staring at a screen. Nature time can literally bring us to our senses.

- Richard Louv

Nature Using

When you're sitting in front of a screen, you're not using all of your senses at the same time. Nowhere than in nature do kids use their senses in such a stimulated way.

- Richard Louv

Racism Will

We will live with racism for ever. But senses of self, senses of belonging, senses of us and of others? Those are up for grabs.

- Richard Powers

Doing Through

More brands are waking up to their social responsibility and doing good work through cause marketing campaigns. Yet too many still go about it the wrong way. I mean 'wrong' in two senses. Firstly, they are marketing ineffectively, and secondly, as a consequence their positive social impact is not maximized.

- Simon Mainwaring

I Think Absence

I started writing because there's an absence of things I was familiar with or that I dreamed about. One of my senses of anger is related to this vacancy - a yearning I had as a teenager... and when I get ready to write, I think I'm trying to fill that.

- Ntozake Shange

Your Very

The first five minutes in Gramacho is really overwhelming because all of your senses are being attacked. Visually, too, because your eyes move and see fragments of things you recognize, but not quite, so it's very artistic. Your eyes are moving, then there's the smell, and the noise is unbearable.

- Vik Muniz

Living Employ

How good is man's life, the mere living! How fit to employ all the heart and the soul and the senses forever in joy!

- Robert Browning

Amazing Miraculous

The body is something absolutely miraculous. It's amazing, the five senses.

- Mathieu Amalric

Trust Hamlet

In Shakespeare's world, characters cannot trust their senses. Is the ghost in Hamlet true and truthful, or is it a demon, tempting young Hamlet into murderous sin? Is Juliet dead or merely sleeping? Does Lear really stand at the edge of a great cliff? Or has the Fool deceived him to save his life?

- Virginia Postrel

Young Very

I am perhaps the oldest musician in the world. I am an old man but in many senses a very young man. And this is what I want you to be, young, young all your life, and to say things to the world that are true.

- Pablo Casals
