Quote of the Day
Truth in philosophy means that concept and external reality correspond.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
No one feels another's grief, no one understands another's joy. People imagine they can reach one another. In reality they only pass each other by.
Mother Nature comes up against reality, and the reality is that the system doesn't work.
Reality is not always probable, or likely.
Jorge Luis Borges
The history of philosophy is not, like the history of the sciences, to be studied with the intellect alone. That which is receptive in us and that which impinges upon us from history is the reality of man's being, unfolding itself in thought.

Pope Benedict XVI
Sometimes you have to look reality in the eye, and deny it.
With photography a new language has been created. Now for the first time it is possible to express reality by reality. We can look at an impression as long as we wish, we can delve into it and, so to speak, renew past experiences at will.
True faith is belief in the reality of absolute values.
William Ralph Inge
The supernatural birth of Christ, his miracles, his resurrection and ascension, remain eternal truths, whatever doubts may be cast on their reality as historical facts.
David Friedrich Strauss

Laurell K. Hamilton
The idea that the rest of the world was somehow being held hostage by the Arab-Israeli conflict once had a minimal basis in reality. In the first 20 years of Israel's existence, every Arab country was in an active state of war with the Jewish state.
I liked pretending to be other people: I could reinvent myself, reinvent my own reality.
Helena Bonham Carter
Size is not a reality, but a construct of the mind; and space a construct to contain constructs.
Robert Anton Wilson
Sometimes legends make reality, and become more useful than the facts.
It was simple reality - most competitive tennis players in my day were privileged, spoiled, entitled and white. Also, many of them were beautiful, fit, tan and of good stock - great big hair and white teeth and long legs. Then there were the rest of us.
A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is a reality.

You don't have to sort of enhance reality. There is nothing stranger than truth.
If heaven is understood more as God's space on earth than as an ethereal region apart from the essential reality we know, then what happens on earth matters even more than we think, for the Christian life becomes a continuation of the unfolding work of Jesus, who will one day return to set the world to rights.
Reality is something you rise above.
