Illusions


A pleasant illusion is better than a harsh reality. - Christian Nestell Bovee

Don’t part with your illusions. When they are gone, you may still exist, but you have ceased to live. - Mark Twain

Illusion is the dust the devil throws in the eyes of the foolish. - Minna Antrim

Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces. - Sigmund Freud

Modern mans difficulties, dangerous beliefs and feelings of loneliness, spiritual emptiness, and personal weakness are caused by his illusions about, and separation from, the natural world. - Benjamin Hoff

The trouble with illusions is that you do not realize you have them till they are shattered. - Unknown

Whatever is a reality today, whatever you touch and believe in and that seems real for you today, is going to be - like the reality of yesterday - an illusion tomorrow. - Luigi Pirandello
