Better a dish of illusion and a hearty appetite for life, than a feast of reality and indigestion therewith.

Overstreet, Harry A.

For what we call illusions are often, in truth, a wider vision of past and present realities --a willing movement of a man's soul with the larger sweep of the world's forces --a movement towards a more assured end than the chances of a single life.

Joseph Conrad

There is no such thing as real happiness in life. The justest definition that was ever given of it was "a tranquil acquiescence under an agreeable delusion"--I forget where.

Laurence Sterne

Illusion and wisdom combined are the charm of life and art.

Joseph Joubert

When the boys come into my yard for leave to gather horse-chestnuts, I own I enter into nature's game, and affect to grant the permission reluctantly, fearing that any moment they will find out the imposture of that showy chaff. But this tenderness is quite unnecessary; the enchantments are laid on very thick. Their young life is thatched with them. Bare and grim to tears is the lot of the children in the hovel I saw yesterday; yet not the less they hang it round with frippery romance, like the children of the happiest fortune.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

We trained hard - but it seemed every time we were beginning to form up into teams we were reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising, and what a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while actually producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.

Petronius Arbiter

Charles Rosin

They say golf is like life, but don't believe them. Golf is more complicated than that.

Gardner Dickinson

They say golf is like life, but don't believe them. It's more complicated than that.
