“It is only hope which is real, and reality is a bitterness and a deceit”
William Makepeace Thackeray
“One should rather die than be betrayed. There is no deceit in death. It delivers precisely what it has promised. Betrayal, though ... betrayal is the willful slaughter of hope.”
“When I consider life, 'tis all a cheat. Yet, fooled by hope, men favour the deceit; trust on, and think to-morrow will repay: to-morrow's falser than the former day.”
“When I consider life, 'tis all a cheat yet, fool'd by hope, men favour the deceit”
“A false friend and a shadow attend only while the sun shines”
“When I consider life, it is all a cheat. Yet fooled with hope, people favor this deceit.”
“Self deceit is the best known last hope.”
