Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and dramatist.

We live on the leash of our senses.

Diane Ackerman (1948-?) American poet, writer and naturalist.

There is no way in which to understand the world without first detecting it through the radar-net of our senses.

Diane Ackerman (1948-?) American poet, writer and naturalist.

We are all instruments endowed with feeling and memory. Our senses are so many strings that are struck by surrounding objects and that also frequently strike themselves.

Denis Diderot (1713-1784) French philosopher.

Taste is only to be educated by contemplation, not of the tolerably good but of the truly excellent. I therefore show you only the best works; and when you are grounded in these, you will have a standard for the rest, which you will know how to value, without overrating them.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832) German poet, novelist and dramatist.

''Reason'' is the cause of our falsification of the evidence of the senses. In so far as the senses show becoming, passing away, change, they do not lie.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) German-Swiss philosopher and writer.

I was afraid that by observing objects with my eyes and trying to comprehend them with each of my other senses I might blind my soul altogether.

Socrates (BC 469-BC 399) Greek philosopher of Athens
