ignoring reality Quotes

Six of the best book quotes about ignoring reality
  1. #1
    “I soon found out this much:—terror can be endured so long as a man simply ducks;—but it kills, if a man thinks about it.”
  2. #2
    “After dinner the whole family stretched out on the benches and the floor of the depot and read, with the dictionary in the middle of the room so we kids could look up words we didn’t know...Occasionally, on those nights when we were all reading together, a train would thunder by, shaking the house and rattling the windows. The noise was thunderous, but after we’d been there a while, we didn’t even hear it.”
  3. #3
    “Somewhere in her brain a wall formed, a wall that kept out further consideration about what was happening here.”
  4. #4
    “Every window on Alcatraz has a view of San Francisco.”
  5. #5
    “I was a little excited but mostly blorft. ‘Blorft’ is an adjective I just made up that means ‘Completely overwhelmed but proceeding as if everything is fine and reacting to the stress with the torpor of a possum.’ I have been blorft every day for the past seven years.”
  6. #6
    “I did not want to find her aged and broken; I really dreaded it. In the course of twenty crowded years one parts with many illusions. I did not wish to lose the early ones. Some memories are realities, and are better than anything that can ever happen to one again.”
