Vision is the Art of Seeing
Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to other. Quote by Jonathan Swift.
That quote is allegedly attributed to Jonathan Swift, the 17th century satirist most famous for writing Gulliver’s Travels. But it’s an interesting quote, I think. The number of times I have heard a famous historical figure called a “visionary” are innumerable. Perhaps this is why they were famous – they saw what no one else saw (or perhaps they spoke out about topics that others simply would not acknowledge). Individuals like Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Nikola Tesla, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, and William Shakespeare all spring to mind. And it makes sense, to think that they all shared a remarkable sense of vision unique for their times.
