Illusion Quotes

Illusion is the first of all pleasures

Oscar Wilde

Illusions are art, for the feeling person, and it is by art that we live, if we do

Elizabeth Bowen

Freedom from worries and surcease from strain are illusions that always inhabit the distance

Edwin Way Teale

The first man to see an illusion by which men have flourished for centuries surely stands in a lonely place

Gary Zukav

The impression forces itself upon one that men measure by false standards, that everyone seeks power, success, riches for himself, and admires others who attain them, while undervaluing the truly precious thing in life.

Desiderius Erasmus

Half the work that is done in this world is to make things appear what they are not.

Beadle, E. R.

We must select the Illusion which appeals to our temperament and embrace it with passion, if we want to be happy.

Connolly, Cyril

We always think every other man's job is easier than our own. The better he does it, the easier it looks.

Phillpotts, Eden

Disillusion is a natural stage that follows the holding of an illusion.

Shaughnessy, Susan

Analysts are great at providing data and information that the average buy-side shop doesn't have the capacity to get on their own. But no one on the buy side was ever under the illusion that these people were objective.

Angela Kohler

Emotional attachment to Maya is created by my God; He Himself misleads us through illusion and doubt.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

If you understand hallucination and illusion, you don't blindly follow any leader. You must know if the person is sane or insane, over the abyss.

Marguerite Young

Most of us, no matter what we say, are walking in the dark, whistling in the dark. Nobody knows what is going to happen to him from one moment to the next, or how one will bear it. This is irreducible. And it is true of everybody. Now, it is true that the nature of society is to create, among its citizens, an illusion of safety; but it is also absolutely true that the safety is always necessarily an illusion. Artists are here to disturb the peace.

James Baldwin

The experiences which drugs induce are as far removed from Reality as is a mirage, from water. No matter how much you pursue the mirage, you will never quench your thirst, and the search for Truth through drugs must end in disillusionment.

Meher Baba

Unlike the small community, where every person lives in the illusion of having the same ideals, beliefs, and values as everyone else, in the larger context of plural communities-be it in country, continent, or globe we live in the illusion of absolute difference. So, fearing the possibility that the interaction will change us, we magnify the threat involved in engaging with that which differs from us. Change is stressful, and costly, because it requires learning to navigate the unfamiliar. In the end, you cannot work with anyone who is different, and problems that could be resolved if we allowed everyone to contribute the best of themselves begin to look intractable.
