4. "The best people in a dying culture are the outcasts considered crazy by the leaders; the ones most disillusioned with their own culture. In Yeats' phrase, "the best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity." Intense emotional attachment to any value, any virtue, any set of "shoulds" is a disease, a mental illness, a condition of self-murder and cultural assassination."
Author: Brad Blanton
5. "And Grace calls out, 'You are not just a disillusioned old man who may die soon, a middle-aged woman stuck in a job and desperately wanting to get out, a young person feeling the fire in the belly begin to grow cold. You may be insecure, inadequate, mistaken or potbellied. Death, panic, depression, and disillusionment may be near you. But you are not just that. You are accepted.' Never confuse your perception of yourself with the mystery that you really are accepted."
Author: Brennan Manning

For I would rather be thought of as all of these things, than not love. If in loving, I become the naked woman on the horse, I will ride that horse with my head held high. This is my spirit. I am unbreakable."
Author: C. JoyBell C.
7. "My mind id more problem/solution orientated. Mad at me? Scream at me. Punch me if you're up for it. Please don't smile at me sweetly, act like nothing is wrong and then leave me disillusioned. - Caleb"
Author: C.J. Roberts
8. "I have no routines or personal history. One day I found out that they were no longer necessary for me and, like drinking, I dropped them. One must have the desire to drop them and then one must proceed harmoniously to chop them off, little by little. If you have no personal history, no explanations are needed; nobody is angry or disillusioned with your acts. And above all no one pins you down with their thoughts. It is best to erase all personal history because that makes us free from the encumbering thoughts of other people. I have, little by little, created a fog around me and my life. And now nobody knows for sure who I am or what I do. Not even I. How can I know who I am, when I am all this?"
Author: Carlos Castaneda
9. "Da taeuscht du dich. Hier liegen die Erinnerungen Hunderter von Menschen, ihre Leben, Gefühle, Illusionen, ihre Abwesenheit, die Traeume, die sie nie verwirklichen konnten, die Enttaeuschungen, Irrtuemer und unerwiderten Lieben, die ihnen das Leben vergiftet haben. All das ist hier - auf immer festgehalten." Ich schaute sie neugierig und ein wenig befangen an, ich wusste nicht genau, wovon sie eigentlich sprach. Für sie war es jedenfalls wichtig. "Man kann vom Leben nichts verstehen, solange man den Tod nicht versteht", sagte sie."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
10. "Non devi credere a tutto ciò che vedi. L'immagine della realtà che ci offrono i nostri occhi è solo un'illusione, un effetto ottico. La luce è una gran bugiarda."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
11. "Reality is not far away from disillusionment. Strive sensibly to get disillusioned before further time being lost."
Author: Chandrababu V.S.
12. "What of the hundreds of faceless men on the streets looking for work, trying to pick up the threads of family life, hoping that the dying had made a better Britain, and finding they were lost in it. Faceless men…People stepped around them now, ignored the brave boy who'd marched away to glory and now begged on the street because a one-armed man couldn't work. He thought sometimes, in the dark corners of his mind, that the dead were the lucky ones. They hadn't been disillusioned."
Author: Charles Todd
13. "A child who is disillusioned abruptly, by his peers or siblings, being ridiculed for his faith and imagination, may choose never to believe in anything- tangible or intangible- again. To never trust or wonder."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
14. "My biggest gripe is still hope. In hell, hope is a really really bad habit. Like smoking cigarettes or fingernail biting. Hope is something really tough and tenacious you have to give up. It's an addiction to break. Yes, I know the word tenacious. I'm 13 and disillusioned. And a little lonely."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
15. "To have regret is to be disappointed with yourself and your choices. Those who are wise, see their life like stepping stones across a great river. Everyone misses a stone from time to time. No one can cross the river without getting wet. Success is measured by your arrival on the other side, not on how muddy your shoes are. Regrets are only felt by those who do not understand life's purpose. They become so disillusioned that they stand still in the river and do not take the next leap."
Author: Colleen Houck
16. "God is our final say in who and what's negative and who and what's positive in our lives. It is best not to have this so over-simplified as the illusioned superstitionists have it; an infinite being's tests may not always be so flowery, and the things we may see as positive are in many cases simply desires of our sinful nature. We are to protect our spirit without falling into the narcissistic mistake of trying to protect our selfish emotions, which the latter, in turn, is more than unlikely to bring peace and happiness. But rather guilt and emptiness. When one walks around constantly, in his mind, attempting to separate positive versus negative people, he is already controlled by something even worse than those he calls the 'negative people', and that is before he spots it soon enough to avoid it as he hypocritically tries to avoid them."
Author: Criss Jami
17. "How elating it must be, to be able to take a precept and with wisdom throw it in the observer's face, disillusioned,"
Author: Dew Platt
18. "He believed in nothing. Which is why his departures and his pursuit of the most intense feelings and acts were so radical, so deep and honest. The truth of life was perfectly clear to him. Nothing was made, every new morning was clear. His only challenge was inward. He had not been disillusioned or had some bad experience that he could put it all down to. He had simply seen the world and that was that. And he understood how slippery every moment was and he liked the thrill of it. Slipping from the knowable to the unknown, walking from one street to the next, being different all the time. In one afternoon he could slip from one personality to another. Why not?"
Author: Dionne Brand
19. "She is a loner, too bright for the slutty girls and too savage for the bright girls, haunting the edges and corners of the school like a sullen disillusioned ghost"
Author: Eleanor Catton
20. "It's strange, but I find myself more disillusioned by a man who has such easily persuaded views than I would be by one whose views were entirely opposite but passionately held. Isn't that quixotic of me?"
Author: Elizabeth Hoyt
21. "Perfino in quel pomeriggio dovevano esserci stati momenti in cui Daisy non era riuscita a stare all'altezza del sogno, non per sua colpa, ma a causa della vitalità colossale dell'illusione di lui che andava al di là di Daisy, di qualunque cosa. Gatsby vi si era gettato con passione creatrice, continuando ad accrescerla, ornandola di ogni piuma vivace che il vento gli sospingesse a portata di mano. Non c'è fuoco né gelo tale da sfidare ciò che un uomo può accumulare nel proprio cuore."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
22. "La vita non è in garanzia. Non è una lavatrice che se si rompe qualcuno te la ripara. Se si rompe, si rompe. Puoi stare fuori dalla vita, costruendoti un mondo di certezze, ma è solo un'illusione. Non puoi farci niente."
Author: Fabio Volo
23. "Il per sempre è un'illusione... troppo comodo... noi siamo per l'adesso."
Author: Fabio Volo

Author: Francis Maude
25. "At lilac evening I walked with every muscle aching among the lights of 27th and Welton in the Denver colored section, wishing I were a Negro, feeling that the best the white world had offered was not enough ecstasy for me, not enough life, joy, kicks, darkness, music, not enough night... I wished I were a Denver Mexican, or even a poor overworked Jap, anything but what I was so drearily, a "white man" disillusioned. All my life I'd had white ambitions; that was why I'd abandoned a good woman like Terry in the San Joaquin Valley I passed the dark porches of Mexican and Negro homes."
Author: Jack Kerouac
26. "He yawned; he had finished the day, and he had also finished with his youth. Various tried and proved rules of conduct had already discreetly offered him their services: disillusioned epicureanism, smiling tolerance, resignation, flat seriousness, stoicism--all the aids whereby a man may savor, minute by minute, like a connoisseur, the failure of a life... 'I have attained the age of reason."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
27. ".. si chiese se esisteva amore tra gli esseri umani che non fosse basato su una specie di illusione volontaria"
Author: John Le Carré
28. "Life can be so good if you let it. But you must trade with life. You give something and you get something, then you give something of yourself again and you receive something again. Life goes bad when people try to take from it without giving. Then they came away empty-handed, and they grab harder and more often, growing more disappointed and disillusioned each time."
Author: Judith McNaught
29. "I am what is known as a benched Catholic and disillusioned by the church doctrine. I believe in things the Catholic Church does not believe in: divorce being one, and a women's right to choose being another."
Author: Kitty Kelley
30. "For the senior officers in Iraq, at least in 2005-2006, the responsibility was to the men at the top, the media, the message, the public back home - anything and everything, it seemed, but the soldiers under their command. And that's the ultimate betrayal of Iraq, the one that disillusioned me in Baghdad and Nineveh and keeps me outraged today."
Author: Luis Carlos Montalván
31. "God is not disillusioned with us. He never had any illusions to begin with."
Author: Luis Palau
32. "We try to discover in things, which become precious to us on that account, the reflection of what our soul has projected on to them; we are disillusioned when we find that they are in reality devoid of the charm which they owed, in our minds, to the association of certain ideas."
Author: Marcel Proust
33. "Something I don't want anyone to know, Alex? I am a dissillusioned former hopeless romantic with larcenous tendencies.But I did kill the verbal part of the PSATs.The way I saw it,I had three options.1.I could take the stuff to Maxine. "Hey,look what I found." Confession of theft optional and probably not smart.2. I could slip them back into the book and pretend they never existed.3. I could destroy them.Option two sounded just marvelous."
Author: Melissa Jensen
34. "To be poor, ugly and, moreover, intelligent condemns one in our society to a dark and disillusioned beauty all is forgiven."
Author: Muriel Barbery
35. "Sono sovraccarico di tensione, irritato ed irritabile. Con le persone, con gli oggetti. Il pensiero più disturbante? Che sia stato io stesso ad alimentare qualcosa che forse non c'era. Ora sicuramente quel coltello che mi scava dentro non è più un illusione. Gli occhi e le orecchie invisibili a cui è affidata la mia persona non avranno mancato di tradurre i miei nuovi atteggiamenti in paragrafi e capitoli, corredati di suggerimenti e domande, a dubbi legati alla mia affidabilità ed efficienza. Un giorno non mi spiacerebbe avere accesso ai rapporti compilati e incasellati a mio nome. Avrei l'occasione di leggere il diario segreto che qualcuno ha scritto su di me."
Author: Paolo Ferrara
36. "Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks. Perhaps this person will never be disappointed or disillusioned; perhaps she won't suffer the way people do when they have a dream to follow. But when that person looks back – and at some point everyone looks back – she will hear her heart saying, "What have you done with the miracles that God planted in your days? What have you done with the talents God bestowed on you? You buried yourself in a cave because you were fearful of losing those talents. So this is your heritage; the certainty that you wasted your life."
Author: Paulo Coelho
37. "If we think we will have joy only by praying and singing psalms, we will be disillusioned. But if we fill our lives with simple good things and constantly thank God for them, we will be joyful, that is, full of joy. And what about our problems? When we determine to dwell on the good and excellent things in life, we will be so full of those things that they will tend to swallow our problems."
Author: Richard J. Foster

Author: Scott McClellan
41. "Mit Sicherheit weiß ich nur das eine, daß die Werturteile der Menschen unbedingt von ihren Glückswünschen geleitet werden, also ein Versuch sind, ihre Illusionen mit Argumenten zu stützen. Die Schicksalsfrage der Menschenart scheint mir zu sein, ob und in welchem Maße es ihrer Kulturentwicklung gelingen wird, der Störung des Zusammenlebens durch den menschlichen Aggressions- und Selbstvernichtungstrieb Herr zu werden."
Author: Sigmund Freud
42. "It probably wasn't entirely her fault that she was such a bitter person. Having a name like Grace can be a serious stigma, especially when nature has endowed you with about as much charm as that of a disillusioned walrus."
Author: Sorin Suciu
43. "Someone who is permanently surprised that depravity exists, who continues to feel disillusioned (even incredulous) when confronted with evidence of what humans are capable of inflicting in the way of gruesome, hands-on cruelties upon other humans, has not reached moral or psychological adulthood."
Author: Susan Sontag
44. "It's what is strange about doing a job that is also the thing you love, the thing you feel passionate about. People get to the point where they're burned out and disillusioned by the whole thing because when things aren't going well at work it also means they aren't going well in your heart, in your soul. They're all wrapped up together."
Author: Teddy Thompson
45. "I became disillusioned with dance when I was 16 and started focusing on acting."
Author: Teri Polo
46. "We throw the word around so much that it is nearly meaningless. We've reduced the experience of 'being in love' to that which can be summarized in a pop-song or portrayed in a chick flick. Then we're angry and disillusioned when love disappoints. Here's a little secret: love always disappoints. It's the conscious choice to love someone or not to love someone, despite the disappointment, that makes it beautiful."
Author: Ty Roth
47. "Faceva male. Qualunque sentimento risultava doloroso accanto aquella donna, ogni cosa che nasceva e moriva attorno a Eleanorpossedeva spine taglienti che si conficcavano ovunque dentro di lui.Un dolore al quale, nonostante tutto, il suo corpo non riusciva arinunciare.Graffiami. Incidi tutta te stessa dentro di me, così che possa averel'illusione di averti per sempre."
Author: Valentina C. Brin
48. "I observed with disillusioned clarity the despicable nonentity of the street; its porches; its window curtains; the drab clothes, the cupidity and complacency of shopping women; and old men taking the air in comforters; the caution of people crossing; the universal determination to go on living, when really, fools and gulls that you are, I said, any slate may fly from a roof, any car may swerve, for there is neither rhyme nor reason when a drunk man staggers about with a club in his hand - that is all."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "Quando l'ombra del telaio si disegnò sulle tendine era tra le sette e le otto del mattino, e fui di nuovo dentro il tempo, sentendo il ticchettio dell'orologio. Era quello del nonno e quando me lo diede il babbo disse: Quentin, eccoti il mausoleo di ogni speranza e desiderio; è molto probabile, purtroppo, che te ne serva anche tu per ottenere il reducto absurdum di ogni umana esperienza, che non farà per i tuoi bisogni individuali più di quanto fece per i suoi o per quelli di suo padre. Non te lo do perché tu possa ricordarti del tempo, ma perché ogni tanto tu possa dimenticarlo per un attimo e non sprecare tutto il tuo fiato nel tentativo di vincerlo. Perché, disse, le battaglie non si vincono mai. Non si combattono nemmeno. L'uomo scopre, sul campo, solo la sua follia e disperazione, e la vittoria è un'illusione dei filosofi e degli stolti."
Author: William Faulkner
50. "I never was disillusioned with acting because I love acting."
Author: Woody Harrelson

'Be comfortable with who you are', reads the headline on the Hush Puppies poster. Are they mad? If people were comfortable with who they were, they'd never buy any products except the ones they needed, and then where would the advertising industry be?"
