Fantasy Quotes

Fantasies are more than substitutes for unpleasant reality; they are also dress rehearsals, plans. All acts performed in the world begin in the imagination.

Barbara Grizzuti Harrison

The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don't know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened.

Unknown

The whole fauna of human fantasies, their marine vegetation, drifts and luxuriates in the dimly lit zones of human activity, as though plaiting thick tresses of darkness. Here, too, appear the lighthouses of the mind, with their outward resemblance to less pure symbols. The gateway to mystery swings open at the touch of human weakness and we have entered the realms of darkness. One false step, one slurred syllable together reveal a man's thoughts.

Louis Aragon

All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.

Carl Jung

When a fantasy turns you on, you're obligated to God and nature to start doing it - right away.

Stewart Brand

Your biggest fantasy is walking away from the life (they think) you lead.

Pete Wentz

All cartoon characters and fables must be exaggeration, caricatures. It is the very nature of fantasy and fable.

Walt Disney

All fantasy should have a solid base in reality.

Max Beerbohm

Fantasy for me as a kid was real, and I had a fantasy about what life was, whether it was sort of wicked and dire, or wholly normal, or whatever. Anything really close to home is not, it seems to me, what a good book should be about.

Diana Wynne Jones

I embrace death without regret as I embraced life without fear.

Kargos Bloodspitter

Dino Buzzati

A lot of fantasy players feel now as though winning in their fantasy league is more important than what they will at times describe as their childlike loyalty to one team.

Don Levy

President Barack Obama. President Barack Obama. Nope, still can't get used to it. It's literally too good to be true. I must've died in my sleep and am now having an insane fantasy pumped into my head by the Matrix. Any minute now Salma Hayek is going to float through the door with a tray of biscuits and I'll know the game's up.

Charlton

Science-fiction balances you on the cliff. Fantasy shoves you off.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

What I wanted to get at is the value difference between pornographic playing-cards when you're a kid, and pornographic playing-cards when you're older. It's that when you're a kid you use the cards as a substitute for a real experience, and when you're older you use real experience as a substitute for the fantasy.

Albee, Edward

Even in a fantasy realm, growing up is accomplished not without cost.

Lloyd Chudley Alexander

She has been condemned to death by hanging. A man may escape this death by becoming the hangman, a woman by marrying the hangman. But at the present time there is no hangman; thus there is no escape. There is only a death, indefinitely postponed. This is not fantasy, it is history.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

It didn't matter what we did or where we did it as long as we were together. We knew we'd found what most people either pursue in years of futile search or dismiss as a fantasy at the outset: the missing half of ourselves. The real thing.

John Perry Barlow

I'm planning, you see, to try to confine myself to the truth. That's hard for an old, inveterate fantasy martyr and [illegible] liar who has never hesitated to give truth the form he felt the occasion demanded.

Ingmar Bergman

You Can't Manage Stress Unless You Do These Three Things
