We can see that the ears receive sound; they do not create. The eyes are creative. The nose perceives the odor; it cannot create. The nose can tell us the flavor of a thing much sooner, much more exactly than the palate. The lips, the mouth, create, and they are attracted to each other. When the ears hear a sound, the eyes at once want to turn to see what it is, from where it comes. The nose at once wants to interfere with what the mouth does. It says, "Do not chew that any longer. I don't want it or it says, "Do justice to that; I like it; it is nice."
