|A novel is balanced between a few true impressions and the multitude of false ones that make up most of what we call life. It tells us that for every human being there is a diversity of existences, that the single existence is itself an illusion in part…it promises us meaning, harmony, and even justice.
– Saul Bellow (1915-2005)
|Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.
– Friedrich Nietzsche (Oct 15, 1844-Aug 25, 1900)
