Comfortable eyes

Our eye finds it more comfortable to respond to a given stimulus by reproducing once more an image that it has produced many times before, instead of registering what is different and new in an impression.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Ever try really looking at someone you've known a long time? Sometimes its surprising how different they look from what you thought.

I agree, we develop a habit of seeing things, and that habit often is a huge delusion.
Keeping our vision fresh is one of the most important things in art, we should always look at things and people as we did the first time.
