A bon mot double whammy

"We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions. We are haunted not by reality, but by those images we have put in its place."

Daniel J. Boorstin  (1914-2004)

"Better a dish of illusion and a hearty appetite for life, than a feast of reality and indigestion therewith."

Harry A. Overstreet  (1875-1970)
