A Quote by Matthew Fox on pain and illusion

Pain destroys the illusions of false, that is, elitist pleasures. It burns from the inside out. It, therefore, sensitizes us to what is truly beautiful in life.

We were talking about the space between us all
And the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion

A Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin on earth and illusion

The greatest obstacle to discovering the shape of the earth, the continents, and the ocean was not ignorance but the illusion of knowledge.

A Quote by Harland Meltzer on dream, earth, illusion, imagination, people, reality, and time

The mix of illusion and reality that runs through the play is also a particularly relevant theme at this time.  For this is at the heart of what we do each year.  With your participation, we visit people and worlds where the normal, earthbound laws of physics no longer apply. ... Not only is the play filled throughout with the imagery of dreams, but Puck even addresses the audience at the play's close with the advice that if they've not been pleased with what they've seen, they should just tell themselves that they've been dreaming, and will wake up with nothing lost.  And what's to say that we haven't been dreaming while this parade of characters has performed across the stretch of our imagination?

A Quote by Fred Alan Wolf on illusion, moon, self, and soul

The self is fundamentally an illusion arising as a reflection of the soul in matter, much as a clear lake at midnight reflects the moon.

A Quote by Peter Gabriel on illusion

When illusion spins her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouettes
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes, but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me

Peter Gabriel

A Quote by Mary Catherine Bateson on ancestors, illusion, life, place, and time

In many ways, constancy is an illusion.  After all, our ancestors were immigrants, many of them moving on every few years; today we are migrants in time.  Unless teachers can hold up a model of lifelong learning and adaptation, graduates are likely to find themselves trapped into obsolescence as the world changes around them.  Of any stopping place in life, it is good to ask whether it will be a good place from which to go on as well as a good place to remain.
