Thoughts and Dreams

"The unreal is more powerful than the real,
because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it,
because it's only tangible 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..."

Quote by Chuck Palahniuk

  1. Interesting, and beautiful picture - fits the quote perfectly.

  2. That is so true isn't it ~ our imagination can be so much bigger then the truth, the reality. But sometimes we luck out and find ourselves in situations, with people, doing things, that are even better then we imagined, hoped for, dreamed.

    Dreams, imaginations, thoughts...such powerful things!

    Have a most wonderful day Alina!

  3. Hi Alina..wonderful! and a powerful post! I always LOVE the photos you choose..gorgeous!

  4. You always choose the perfect picture to illustrate your posts Alina - she is lovely, like a pre-Raphaelite maiden. These sentiments are so true - the imagination is a powerful tool.


  5. What a quote! Even more powerful is the dream or thought brought into reality? Why are we so afraid to do that? Sometimes, though, it's a relief to realize that the powerfully hurtful thought that can wreak so much havoc in our lives is not reality. It's lovely when that kind of "reality" triumphs, don't you think? Anyway, I love the thought of this quote.

    I hope you're surviving those allergies. My heart just goes out to you and I've been thinking of you!

    Love, Katy xo

  6. 15 years ago, I trained as a hypnotherapist. Our tutor told us " Imagination is more powerful than logic" and I have certainly found that to be true.

  7. Alina what a beautiful quote. I do hope you get to feeling better soon. My allergies kick in the Fall. Miserable...I know what you mean by cranky!

  8. June, great to see you! Hope your new creative space is coming along just as you hoped XX

    Thank you everyone for the get well wishes. I am a bit better, but still not out of the woods. Can't wait for May so I can be okay and finally tackle the garden! XX


Albert Schweitzer said "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit" I thank you all!
