Modern man lives under the illusion that he knows what he wants, while he actually wants what he is supposed to want.
Life has no meaning the moment you lose the illusion of being eternal.
Illusions, however weakened and unmasked by reason, still remain and form the chief part of our life.
A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.
The most solid pleasure in this life is the empty pleasure of illusion.
