• Rain slips through your fingers as easily as words blow away in the wind, and yet it has the power to destroy your whole world

  • Hope is a beautiful lie and it requires talent to create it for others

  • Hope itself is always genuine. It's only what it's placed in that can prove to be false

  • Miracles are like murders. After the first one, each becomes easier than the last for, with each success, the miracle-worker's certainty in himself becomes stronger

  • I'd believed mine was the greatest of all the arts, the noblest of all the lies, the creation of hope. I thought hope could overcome everything, but I was wrong. Hope cannot overcome truth. Hope and truth cannot co-exist. Truth destroys hope. The most savage cruelties man inflicts on man are committed in the pursuit of truth. My last lie had been the most honest, the most honorable of them all, for there is an art greater even than the creation of hope. The greatest art of all is the destruction of truth
