Delusion
 
  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.
            —Buddha

  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 virtue’s arms.
            —Edward Lovibond

  Delusion—like the butterfly to soar.
            —Imre Madách
