24 Enlightening Quotes About Reality Of Life

The concept of reality is something that’s baffled philosophers and scientists from time immemorial. What is real and what is imagined? Just because you think you can see and feel something, does it mean that it is real? What if it is just your perception of the reality and not the reality itself? It is so confusing, isn’t it? Reality has been defined as the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined.

Imagination is a powerful thing; so is reality. But there are times when our imaginations get the better of us and cloud our perception of reality. It is at such times that we get nervous and frightened about imaginary problems which don’t even exist in reality! While it is good to have a healthy imagination, we should be careful so as to not let it overshadow the reality! Similarly there are those times when we get stuck in a beautiful imaginary land and fail to acknowledge the problems that exist in reality. To live a healthy and happy life, it is important to balance our imagination and perception of reality! This collection of quotes is sure to make you think about the realities of the world we live in.
