If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.
C. S. Lewis

Wishful thinking is not idealism. It is self-indulgence at best and self-exaltation at worst. In either case, it is usually at the expense of others. In other words, it is the opposite of idealism.
Thomas Sowell

Stop the habit of wishful thinking and start the habit of thoughtful wishes.
Mary Martin

Wishful thinking is one thing, and reality another.
Jalal Talabani

Wishful thinking is not sound public policy.
Bjorn Lomborg

wishful thinking has never gotten me anywhere. :/

All so very true, but I cant stop wishful thinking it's just in my nature.

And..."Be Careful What You Wish For!" lol. Great post and messages!

Hi Claudia. I don't really do much wishful thinking. Guess I am more than happy with all the blessings I have already! I have always loved the quotes by C.S. Lewis. Really good to see you here my friend.

Dearest Claudia,
Oh, wishful thinking can be my bad habit. I wish I were a bit taller (you know, I'm a very tiny woman, haha) etc. I think 3rd one I should keep in my mind p;)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

So very true. Have a fun weekend

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
