How does a woman perceive the world, when the world concentrates not on how she feels or thinks, but what she looks like.
Women Watch, Stare, Observe, Eyeball, View, Gaze, Monitor, Absorb, Gawk, Glare, Slight, Confront, Meet, Glance, Defer, Boor, Focus and Ogle with their eyes. Most of all they see.
To look at a thing is very different from seeing a thing. One does not see anything until one sees its beauty. Then, and then only, does it comes into existence.”
― Oscar Wilde
