Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Baltasar Gracian: Do not enter where too much is anticipated. It is the misfortune of the over-celebrated Do not enter where too much is anticipated. It is the misfortune of the over-celebrated that they cannot measure up to excessive expectations. The actual can never attain the imagined: for to think perfection is easy, but to embody it is most difficult. The imagination weds the wish, and together they always conjure up more than reality can furnish. For however great may be a person's virtues, the will never measure up to what was imagined. When people see themselves cheated in their extravagant anticipations, they turn more quickly to disparagement than to praise. Hope is a great falsifier of the truth; the the intelligence put her right by seeing to it that the fruit is superior to its appetite. You will make a better exit when the actual transcends the imagined, and is more than was expected. — Baltasar Gracian

Illusions Of Hope Sayings By John N. Gray: Today, for the mass of humanity, science and technology embody 'miracle, mystery, and authority'. Science Today, for the mass of humanity, science and technology embody 'miracle, mystery, and authority'. Science promises that the most ancient human fantasies will at last be realized. Sickness and ageing will be abolished; scarcity and poverty will be no more; the species will become immortal. Like Christianity in the past, the modern cult of science lives on the hope of miracles. But to think that science can transform the human lot is to believe in magic. Time retorts to the illusions of humanism with the reality: frail, deranged, undelivered humanity. Even as it enables poverty to be diminished and sickness to be alleviated, science will be used to refine tyranny and perfect the art of war. — John N. Gray
Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Gustave Flaubert: What happiness there had been in those days! What freedom! What hope! What an abundance What happiness there had been in those days! What freedom! What hope! What an abundance of illusions! She had none left now.

Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Miguel Syjuco: I have no illusions that my work can rouse the masses to create change, because I have no illusions that my work can rouse the masses to create change, because literature simply doesn't have that power anymore in my country, if it does anywhere. But I do hope that it can be read by those who are in positions to create change, or that it can at least be part of that dialogue. — Miguel Syjuco
Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Tony Parsons: Love is what's left when being in love has gone, okay? It's when you care Love is what's left when being in love has gone, okay? It's when you care about someone and you hope they're happy, but you're not under any illusions about them. Maybe that kind of love is not exciting and passionate and all those things that fade with time. All those things that you're so keen on. But in the end it's the only kind of love that really matters. — Tony Parsons

Which woman am I today? Neither. Both were illusions. — Julie-Anne

Now Alex is very fond of me and I protect him from his own innocence. — Evelyn Waugh

Gray
Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Kevin Keck: Of course, I don't mean to imply that all writers are working in the deep Of course, I don't mean to imply that all writers are working in the deep waters that border on the divine.

I certainly don't fault her for her success, but I hope she has no illusions about the quality of her craft or the longevity of her efforts. — Kevin Keck
Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Joseph Conrad: But the artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on But the artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on wisdom; to that in us which is a gift and not an acquisition - and, therefore, more permanently enduring. He speaks to our capacity for delight and wonder, to the sense of mystery surrounding our lives; to our sense of pity, and beauty, and pain; to the latent feeling of fellowship with all creation - and to the subtle but invincible conviction of solidarity that knits together the loneliness of innumerable hearts, to the solidarity in dreams, in joy, in sorrow, in aspirations, in illusions, in hope, in fear, which binds men to each other, which binds together all humanity - the dead to the living and the living to the unborn. — Joseph Conrad
Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Marguerite Yourcenar: Do not mistake me. I am not yet weak enough to yield to fearful imaginings, Do not mistake me.

Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Arthur Schopenhauer: Life presents itself as a continual deception, in small matters as well as in great. Life presents itself as a continual deception, in small matters as well as in great. If it has promised, it does not keep its word, unless to show how little desirable the desired object was; hence we are deluded now by hope, now by what was hoped for. If it has given, it did so in order to take. The enchantment of distance shows us paradises that vanish like optical illusions, when we have allowed ourselves to be fooled by them. Accordingly, happiness lies always in the future, or else in the past, and the present may be compared to a small dark cloud driven by the wind over the sunny plain; in front of and behind the cloud everything is bright, only it itself always casts a shadow. Consequently, the present is always inadequate, but the future is uncertain, and the past irrecoverable. — Arthur Schopenhauer
Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: We all suffer from dreams. We all suffer from dreams. — Bernard Cornwell

She had got rid of them all in her soul's life, in all her successive conditions of life, maidenhood, her marriage, and her love - thus constantly losing them all her life through, like a traveller who leaves something of his wealth at every inn along his road. — Gustave Flaubert
Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Mikhail Lermontov: It is sad to see a young man's fondest hopes and dreams shattered when the It is sad to see a young man's fondest hopes and dreams shattered when the rose-colured veil is plucked away and he sees the actions and feelings of men for what they are. But he still has the hope of replacing his old illusions with others, just as fleeting, but also just as sweet. — Mikhail Lermontov

Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Jean-Paul Sartre: The absurd man will not commit suicide; he wants to live, without relinquishing any of The absurd man will not commit suicide; he wants to live, without relinquishing any of his certainty, without a future, without hope, without illusions ... and without resignation either. He stares at death with passionate attention and this fascination liberates him. He experiences the "divine irresponsibility" of the condemned man. — Jean-Paul Sartre

Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Benjamin Kunkel: As you grow up, and you'll find this, you keep getting involved with larger and As you grow up, and you'll find this, you keep getting involved with larger and larger illusions that take longer and longer to fall away.

Illusions Of Hope Sayings By Pierre-Augustin Caron De Beaumarchais: It's your world, but I make my way in it. At fifteen, no, I couldn't It's your world, but I make my way in it. At fifteen, no, I couldn't stand up to you. The age of illusions, when we know nothing, we hope for everything; we're wandering in a mist ... And the half of the world that's never had any use for us, suddenly is besieging us. You need us, you adore us, you're suffering for us. You want everything--except to know what we think. You look deep in our eyes--and put your hand up our dress. You call us, "Pretty thing." That confuses us. The most beautiful woman, the highest ranked, lives half dazzled by constant attention, half stifled by obvious contempt. We think all we're good for is pleasing you--till one day, long acquaintance with you dispels the last mist. In a clear light, we suddenly see you as you are--and generally we start preferring ourselves. At thirty, I could finally say no--or really say yes. That's when you begin backing away from us. Now I'm full-grown. I pursue my happiness the same as any man. — Pierre-Augustin Caron De Beaumarchais
