None so blind as those who won’t see

It is no use trying to get a person to see what he does not wish to see, or to understand what he chooses not to understand, or to attract his attention when he has decided to ignore you.

‘I’ve been trying to catch his eye ever since he came into the hall, but he’s always looking some other way.’

‘There’s none so blind as those who won’t see.’
