Illusion Quotes

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

Illusions are the mirages of Hope

Unknown

Relationships are all there is. Everything in the universe only exists because it is in relationship to everything else. Nothing exists in isolation. We have to stop pretending we are individuals that can go it alone from Never Eat Alone

Margaret Wheatley

We read the world wrong and say that it deceives us

Rabindranath Tagore

Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.

Douglas Adams

Ursula Le Guin

I've looked at life from both sides now From win and lose and still somehow It's life's illusions I recall I really don't know life at all.

Joni Mitchell

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.

Hafsat Abiola

Consciousness is an illusion constructed by the memes.

Dr. Susan Jane Blackmore
