The unreal is more powerful than the real.
Because nothing is as important as you can imagine it.
Because it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die.
But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
If you can change the way people think, she said. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. If you can do that, you can change the way people live their lives. And that’s the only lasting thing you can create.”—Choke - Chuck Palahniuk (via gypsydeathandyvy)
