Quote of the Day

The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality, and eventually in one's own.
I love the idea of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the beautiful stories about it, which I loved in Sunday school and I collected all the little stickers and put them in my book. But the reality is that organised religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate.
The days when the words 'Hollywood actor' framed Ronald Reagan like bunny fingers as an ID tag and an implied insult seem far-off and quaint: nearly everybody in politics - candidate, consultant, pundit, and Tea Party crowd extra alike - is an actor now, a shameless ham in a hoked-up reality series that never stops.
The Cold War had become a battlefield marked by doublespeak. Disguise, distortion, and deception were accepted as reality. Truth was promised in a serum.
It always amuses me that the biggest praise for my work comes for the imagination, while the truth is that there's not a single line in all my work that does not have a basis in reality. The problem is that Caribbean reality resembles the wildest imagination.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I'm half living my life between reality and fantasy at all times.
Imagination creates reality.
When you're surrounded by people who share the same set of assumptions as you, you start to think that's reality.
Crucial to science education is hands-on involvement: showing, not just telling; real experiments and field trips and not just 'virtual reality.'
Appearance is something absolute, but reality is not that way - everything is interdependent, not absolute.
You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it.
Rastafari not a culture, it's a reality.
There is hope in dreams, imagination, and in the courage of those who wish to make those dreams a reality.
Strange how paranoia can link up with reality now and then.
Philip K. Dick
I don't want to put one innocent person to death to put 99 that are guilty to death. So philosophically I'm a tooth-for-tooth guy, but the reality is the death penalty as public policy is flawed.
I want my job to include a little adventure, a little more of a heightened reality than what I'm actually living. And 'Castle' has that. He gets this opportunity to tail these homicide detectives, and he's driven by that. He's a little immature, but he's obviously loving life.
Why do you think the fans like us - why they prefer our street raps over all that phony stuff out there? Because we're telling the real story of what it's like living in places like Compton. We're giving them reality. We're like reporters. We give them the truth.
Our daily deeds as ordinary South Africans must produce an actual South African reality that will reinforce humanity's belief in justice, strengthen its confidence in the nobility of the human soul, and sustain all our hopes for a glorious life for all.
Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.
True faith is belief in the reality of absolute values.
William Ralph Inge
In so far as a scientific statement speaks about reality, it must be falsifiable; and in so far as it is not falsifiable, it does not speak about reality.
My intention still is to write a play to commemorate, possibly rather skeptically, the 50th anniversary of the Russian revolution. I started it at the beginning of 1966, but confronted with the enormous importance and reality of that revolution, I absolutely boggle. I don't know what to do about it.
The inner reality of love can be recognized only by love.
Hans Urs von Balthasar
Sleep my friend, and you will see that dream is my reality.
Art must take reality by surprise.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
