Best Reality Short Quote
You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

Dr Seuss


When someone loves you, the way they talk about you is different. You feel safe and comfortable.

Jess C. Scott


Best Reality Short Quote
It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane.

Philip K. Dick , VALIS


Best Reality Short Quote
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Albert Einstein


People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.

Jim Morrison


We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don't even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It's time to put an end to this. It's time for us to let ourselves be loved.

C. JoyBell C.


Best Reality Short Quote
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Philip K. Dick


Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.

Lao Tzu


Best Reality Short Quote
It's funny how humans can wrap their mind around things and fit them into their version of reality.

Rick Riordan Hades , The Lightning Thief


Thinking something does not make it true. Wanting something does not make it real.

Michelle Hodkin


One person's craziness is another person's reality.

Tim Burton


Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.

Anaïs Nin , Incest: From "A Journal of Love": The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin, 1932-1934


The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.

Rachel Carson


Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.

Cormac McCarthy (Author) , All the Pretty Horses


Best Reality Short Quote

Rick Riordan Hades , The Lightning Thief


Best Reality Short Quote
Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.

John Lennon


Reality is frequently inaccurate.

Adams Douglas


Best Reality Short Quote
Fiction reveals truth that reality obscures.

Jessamyn West


Harry Potter isn’t real? Oh no! Wait, wait, what do you mean by real? Is this video blog real? Am I real if you can see me and hear me, but only through the internet? Are you real if I can read your comment but I don’t know who you are or what your name is or where you’re from or what you look like or how old you are? I know all of those things about Harry Potter. Maybe Harry Potter’s real and you’re not.

David Levithan John Green


nothing in this world was more difficult than love.

Gabriel García Márquez


Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

Frank Herbert , Dune


Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else.

George Orwell , 1984


Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.

Karen Marie Moning


I just wanted to tell you that I understand if you go. It’s okay if you have to leave us. It’s okay if you want to stop fighting.

Adam Where She Went Gayle Forman , If I Stay


Maybe each human being lives in a unique world, a private world different from those inhabited and experienced by all other humans. . . If reality differs from person to person, can we speak of reality singular, or shouldn't we really be talking about plural realities? And if there are plural realities, are some more true (more real) than others? What about the world of a schizophrenic? Maybe it's as real as our world. Maybe we cannot say that we are in touch with reality and he is not, but should instead say, His reality is so different from ours that he can't explain his to us, and we can't explain ours to him. The problem, then, is that if subjective worlds are experienced too differently, there occurs a breakdown in communication ... and there is the real illness.

Philip K. Dick


You don't have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your own ground. If you do, that shows how shaky your own position is.

Red Haircrow


A fit, healthy body—that is the best fashion statement

Jess C. Scott


Best Reality Short Quote
La plus belle des ruses du diable est de vous persuader qu'il n'existe pas."
(
"The devil's finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist."
)

Charles Baudelaire , Petits Poemes En Prose


If you've never eaten while crying you don t know what life tastes like.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Best Reality Short Quote
Nothing ever becomes real 'til it is experienced.

John Keats


No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality.

Shirley Jackson


The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.

Robertson Davies , Tempest-Tost


Last night I wept. I wept because the process by which I have become woman was painful. I wept because I was no longer a child with a child's blind faith. I wept because my eyes were opened to reality....I wept because I could not believe anymore and I love to believe. I can still love passionately without believing. That means I love humanly. I wept because I have lost my pain and I am not yet accustomed to its absence.

Anaïs Nin , Henry & June


The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

Alan Wilson Watts


Best Reality Short Quote
Reality is just a crutch for people who can't handle drugs.

Robin McLaurin Williams


There is no point in using the word 'impossible' to describe something that has clearly happened.

Adams Douglas , Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency


How many times have you tried to talk to someone about something that matters to you, tried to get them to see it the way you do? And how many of those times have ended with you feeling bitter, resenting them for making you feel like your pain doesn't have any substance after all?
Like when you've split up with someone, and you try to communicate the way you feel, because you need to say the words, need to feel that somebody understands just how pissed off and frightened you feel. The problem is, they never do. "Plenty more fish in the sea," they'll say, or "You're better off without them," or "Do you want some of these potato chips?" They never really understand, because they haven't been there, every day, every hour. They don't know the way things have been, the way that it's made you, the way it has structured your world. They'll never realise that someone who makes you feel bad may be the person you need most in the world. They don't understand the history, the background, don't know the pillars of memory that hold you up. Ultimately, they don't know you well enough, and they never can. Everyone's alone in their world, because everybody's life is different. You can send people letters, and show them photos, but they can never come to visit where you live.
Unless you love them. And then they can burn it down.

Michael Marshall Smith , Only Forward


Reality can be beaten with enough imagination.

مارك توين


V-Day…if you need this one day in a year to show everyone else you truly care for your loved one I think it’s quite stupid. I hate this commercialism. It’s all artificial, and has nothing to do with real love.

Jess C. Scott


Best Reality Short Quote
Nothing is real.

John Lennon


Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it.

فولتير


There’s no way that Michael Jackson or whoever Jackson should have a million thousand droople billion dollars and then there’s people starving. There’s no way! There’s no way that these people should own planes and there people don’t have houses. Apartments. Shacks. Drawers. Pants! I know you’re rich. I know you got 40 billion dollars, but can you just keep it to one house? You only need ONE house. And if you only got two kids, can you just keep it to two rooms? I mean why have 52 rooms and you know there’s somebody with no room?! It just don’t make sense to me. It don’t.

Tupac Shakur


I suffer from life and from other people. I can’t look at reality face to face. Even the sun discourages and depresses me. Only at night and all alone, withdrawn, forgotten and lost, with no connection to anything real or useful — only then do I find myself and feel comforted.

Fernando Pessoa , Livro do Desassossego por Bernardo Soares


You don't get explanations in real life. You just get moments that are absolutely, utterly, inexplicably odd.

Neil Gaiman


I hate how I don't feel real enough unless people are watching.

chuck pahlaniuk , Invisible Monsters


Best Reality Short Quote
We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, 'Blessed are they that mourn,' and I accept it. I've got nothing that I hadn't bargained for. Of course it is different when the thing happens to oneself, not to others, and in reality, not imagination.

C.S. Lewis , A Grief Observed


Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay. I'm always irritated by people who imply that writing fiction is an escape from reality. It is a plunge into reality and it's very shocking to the system.

Flannery O'Connor , Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose


To predict the behavior of ordinary people in advance, you only have to assume that they will always try to escape a disagreeable situation with the smallest possible expenditure of intelligence.

Friedrich Nietzsche


Betrayal is the only truth that sticks.

Arthur Miller


If you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.

Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer , My Sister's Keeper
