Quote of the Day

The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots.

The drops of rain make a hole in the stone, not by violence, but by oft falling.
Nothing is built on stone; all is built on sand, but we must build as if the sand were stone.
Jorge Luis Borges
