Grace in Small Things . . .
“I know the color of blue when I see it, and the flavor of a pear when I taste it; I know an inch when I move my finger through it; a second of time, when I feel it pass; an effort of attention when I make it; a difference between two things when I notice it; but about the inner nature of these facts or what makes them what they are, I can say nothing at all. I cannot impart acquaintance with them to any one who has not already me it himself. I cannot describe them, make a blind man guess what blue is like.”
~ William James, The Principles of Psychology, Volume 1, p. 221
