I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
The most delusional fantasies can be made to masquerade as sanity if you've got the political power to reinforce them.
Despair is the only cure for illusion. Without despair we cannot transfer our allegiance to reality — it is a kind of mourning period for our fantasies. Some people do not survive this despair, but no major change within a person can occur without it.
Having a fantasy come true doesn't always mean it will be permanent.
—Jodi Picoult in Sing You Home
