But life's just not like that.
Most of the mistakes in thinking are inadequacies of perception rather than mistakes of logic.
Edward de Bono

Costume, hair and makeup can tell you instantly, or at least give you a larger perception of who a character is. It's the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth, so it really does establish who they are.
Facts matter not at all. Perception is everything. It's certainty.
Miracles happen everyday, change your perception of what a miracle is and you'll see them all around you.
Jon Bon Jovi
All women have a perception much more developed than men. So all women somehow, being repressed for so many millennia, they ended up by developing this sixth sense and contemplation and love. And this is something that we have a hard time to accept as part of our society.

A lot of foreigners have few opportunities to visit China, and a lot of Chinese people do not have the chance to go to Europe or to the West.
