It is all an illusion (which is nothing against it, for illusions are the most valuable and necessary of all things, and she who can create one is among the world’s greatest benefactors), but as is is notorious that illusions are shattered by conflict with reality, so no real happiness, no real win, no real profundity are tolerated where the illusion prevails.
