Quotes from the Borderline


“The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible 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. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.”

Chuck Palahniuk


Maybe this is why our racing thoughts, our ruminations have the power to create such a hold over us. It’s all in our mind. Well, maybe not ALL of it, because there are harsh things in this world, but often it’s not nearly so terrible as we fear it will be. More often then that; if we decide to, we can overcome them.
