It's the illusion that is real:

But time strips our illusions of their hue, And one by one in turn, some grand mistake Casts off its bright skin yearly like the snake.
~ Lord Byron ~

It is our illusions that create the world.
~ Didier Cauwelaert ~

Official truths are often powerful illusions.
~ John Pilger ~


Our Wildest Dreams Are Illusions unto Themselves

To concentrate on the present has more value rather than focusing upon unfilled hopes of dreams. The harnessing of abilities that will enable you to achieve anything you set your mind to has more substance than dreams.

Yet dreams are the seeds that drive reality, we must determine that our dreams have feasibility, then use them as the basis upon which to build our reality. There is always a price to be paid in order to make a dream come true, but by using our perfection we can make all our dreams come true.

With the mortality of this life forever waiting for us it becomes our duty to make the dreams we have not what things are but what they might be if only we are prepared to create dreams that are grand. It is never too late, you are never to old to dream, then with effort bring your dreams into reality, making the come true.

When your dreams lay shattered, scattered into pieces, never be afraid to pick up the pieces then begin again. For every dream born, like matter, can't be destroyed - it will only change form. We have the ability to recreate our dreams then make them real through our persistence and determination.

Illusions are the mirages of Hope.

Therefore trust to thy heart, and to what the world calls illusions.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~

Illusion Quote

“What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story, And the greatest good is little enough: for all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams.
