You must be very careful with every word that escapes your mouth, because ultimately that is how your perception/ appearance will be formed. And perception turns into reality. Men in general judge more with the eye than with the hand, because everyone can see, but few can feel. Everyone sees what you seem to be, but few feel what you are.

Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
