Yes, victors are our strongest. They’re the ones who survived the arena and slipped the noose of poverty that strangles the rest of us. They, or should I say we, are the very embodiment of hope where there is no hope. And now twenty-three of us will be killed to show how even that hope was an illusion.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

When you think you’ve got a hold of it all, you haven’t got a hold at all.

Depeche Mode, Get The Balance Right

So much of this world is based on illusion, temporariness and disposability that I think it’s essential that our closest relationships reflect what is real.

Gillian Anderson

A poor man with nothing in his belly needs hope, illusion, more than bread.

Georges Bernanos

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
