The perceptive act is a reaction of the mind upon the object of which it is the perception.
2
Samuel Alexander
Thus the same object may supply a practical perception to one person and a speculative one to another, or the same person may perceive it partly practically and partly speculatively.

Candice Bergen
People see you as an object, not as a person, and they project a set of expectations onto you. People who don't have it think beauty is a blessing, but actually it sets you apart.
7

Charles M. Blow
America is not static. America is striving. And sometimes, America requires critique. Jingoism is an avoidance of realism. You can simultaneously love and be disappointed in the object of your love, wanting it to be better than it is. In fact, that is a measure of love. Honest critique is a pillar of patriotism.
10
Franz Boas
I object to teaching of slogans intended to befog the mind, of whatever kind they may be.
