Reality & Make-Believe

My current reading materials consist of some magazines in Dutch, the third book of professor Yuval Harari, a memoir by Edward Snowden in audio format, and a science fiction e-book series which I read before bedtime. Those plus all the daily online tweets and feeds, give my brains sufficient material to ponder and process.

We all live partially in reality and partially in a world of make-believe.
~Marty Rubin

Jibber Jabber, Quotes


The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.
~J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

In times like this, one remembers the saying where we are to hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst.
