|The list of things which we absolutely know, is not a long one, and we
have not the luck to add a fresh one to it often, but I recognized that
I had added one to mine this day. I knew, now, that it isn't safe to sit
in judgment upon another person's illusion when you are not on the inside.
While you are thinking it is a dream, he may be knowing it is a planet.

Postcard from the
Dave Thomson collection
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist,
but you have ceased to live.
