|Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes. 1916.|
| Delusions, errors, and lies are like huge, gaudy vessels, the rafters of which are rotten and worm-eaten, and those who embark in them are fated to be shipwrecked.|
| Delusions, like dreams, are dispelled by our awakening to the stern realities of life.|
Alexander R. C. Dallas
|Dear delusions, fairy charms,|
As fancy dreams in virtues arms.
| Delusionlike the butterfly to soar.|
