A Quote by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky on brain, dream, life, living, memory, pictures, and reality

In a morbid condition of the brain, dreams often have a singular actuality, vividness, and extraordinary semblance of reality.  At times monstrous images are created, but the setting and the whole picture are so truth-like and filled with details so delicate, so unexpectedly, but so artistically consistent, that the dreamer, were he an artist like Pushkin or Turgenev even, could never have invented them in the waking state.  Such sick dreams always remain long in the memory and make a powerful impression on the overwrought and deranged nervous system.

Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821 - 1881)

A Quote by Andrew Newberg on brain and beliefs

The brain is a stubborn organ.  Once its primary set of beliefs has been established, the brain finds it difficult to integrate opposing ideas and beliefs.  This has profound consequences for individuals and society and helps to explain why some people cannot abandon destructive beliefs, be they religious, political or psychological.
