At first he who invented any art that went beyond the common perceptions of man was naturally admired by men, not only because there was something useful in the inventions, but because he was thought wise and superior to the rest. But as more arts were invented, and some were directed to the necessities of life, others to its recreation, the inventors of the latter were always regarded as wiser than the inventors of the former, because their branches of knowledge did not aim at utility.
~ Aristotle

“When someone walks around a bend in the river, the Pirahã say that the person has not simply gone away but xibipíío—‘gone out of experience. They use the same phrase when a candle flame flickers. The light ‘goes in and out of experience.’ ” 

—  Daniel Everett, best known for his study of the Amazon Basin’s Pirahã people and their language

“Speak up, stand up, and keep correcting the false perceptions. Stay true to your heart’s views and keep chanting for peace and justice.”

A villain is usually portrayed with sharper features to represent their harshness—think Maleficent or Darth Vader. The good guys are softer and rounder to make them appear more lovable and huggable—think Mickey Mouse or Baloo from The Jungle Book. And squares are used for boring and old-fashioned characters like Carl Fredricksen from Up, because squares are squares (duh).
