Famous quotes containing the words realism and/or magical:

    The realism of failure, the romance of success.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    But the life of Spirit is not the life that shrinks from death and keeps itself untouched by devastation, but rather the life that endures it and maintains itself in it. It wins its truth only when, in utter dismemberment, it finds itself.... Spirit is this power only by looking the negative in the face, and tarrying with it.

    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)
