It has been said that if all the angels in heaven were to tell a particularly determined person that someting was absolutely true, he might shut his eyes and stuff his ears against that with which his ego can find no payoff.

It is like an anorexic looking in the mirror and seeing a fat person that no one else of sound mind can see.
