Famous quotes containing the word unreal:

    The bud of the apple is desire, the down-falling gold,
    The catbird’s gobble in the morning half-awake
    These are real only if I make them so. Whistle
    For me, grow green for me and, as you whistle and grow green,
    Intangible arrows quiver and stick in the skin
    And I taste at the root of the tongue the unreal of what is real.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    A scholar, in his Segmenta, left a note,
    As follows, “The Ruler of Reality,
    If more unreal than New Haven, is not
    A real ruler, but rules what is unreal.”
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Writing a novel is not merely going on a shopping expedition across the border to an unreal land: it is hours and years spent in the factories, the streets, the cathedrals of the imagination.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)
